The Bosom Caresser is an old dessert cocktail with a creepy name and a flavor like a breakfast pastry. It goes back at least as far as the late 1800s, and multiple variations on the recipe abound – we like this one from Dale DeGroff’s The Craft of the Cocktail.
Lightly beat the egg yolk to break it up, and add it and the remaining ingredients (except the nutmeg) to a shaker. Add ice, and shake vigorously. Double-strain through a fine mesh strainer into a chilled cocktail glass. Dust with freshly-ground nutmeg.
