Classic Aioli: To make this sauce by the traditional method, place the vinegar, egg, egg yolks (all at room temperature), and mustard in a bowl set on a folded kitchen towel. Using a balloon whisk, beat until thick. Add the oil, drop by drop, whisking constantly. Whisk in the remaining oil, 1 tbsp at a time. Whisk in the garlic and lemon juice, and season with salt and pepper.
