Egg white is essentially protein. When shaken with the other liquids in the drink, the protein molecules stretch and capture air (like when whipping up a meringue) as the mixture emulsifies, giving texture and frothiness to the drink that is both visually appealing and has good mouthfeel.

Emulsion, no. Foam, yes. Mouthfeel? Subjective.

Try a Savoy Hotel White Lady cocktail - use vodka instead of gin. Google it.
