Bosom Caresser

Bosom Caresser cocktail with brandy, Madeira, orange curaçao, egg yolk, grenadine, and nutmeg

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.

Ingredients

Instructions

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.

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
