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.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
