💭 Recipe Tip
One of the most important steps in making garlic aioli is slowly adding the oil while whisking. This helps to emulsify the ingredients and create a creamy texture.
Slowly drizzle in the oil while whisking continuously. It's important to add the oil slowly to prevent the mixture from separating. Keep whisking until the aioli is thick and creamy.
