Ingredients
1 large egg
4 garlic cloves, finely minced
Juice of 1 lemon (about 3 tablespoons)
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon cider vinegar
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground white pepper
3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Dash of hot sauce, or to taste (optional)
Preparation

Fill a small saucepan with 3 inches of water and bring to a boil over medium heat. With a slotted spoon, lower the egg into the water and boil for 6 minutes. Remove the egg and put it in a small bowl of cold water until cool enough to handle. Peel the egg.

Put the egg, garlic, lemon juice, Dijon, vinegar, salt, and white pepper into a blender and puree on low speed. With the blender running, add the oil in a steady, slow stream, blending until emulsified and thickened. Add the hot sauce, if using, and blend on high speed for about 1 minute. Transfer to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Smoked Aioli:

To make smoked aioli, simply add 3/4 teaspoons hickory smoke powder (which youll find sold with spices and other seasoning at the supermarket or online) to the egg mixture before adding the olive oil.
