Egg Sour | Cocktail Party

Egg Sour

The Egg Sour is a classic from the 1946 Stork Club Bar Book by Lucius Beebe. It’s the simple, no-frills ancestor to a whole family tree of eggy descendants.

It has a pleasant orange-cream flavor that’s further enhanced by the nutmeg and bitters. Keep a light hand with the bitters, though; too much can overpower this delicate drink.

Ingredients

Instructions

Vigorously shake all ingredients (except the nutmeg and bitters) with ice. Double-strain through a fine mesh strainer into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a dusting of grated nutmeg and a few drops of bitters. You can drag a toothpick through the bitters for a pretty effect.

I love this app

Super practical, informative, easy to use, even inspiring for lovers of cocktails or just those curious to try a few recipes over time and keep an inventory of favorite recipes handy. Updated fairly judiciously, thankfully, so it isn’t cluttered up with unproven concoctions resulting in an overwhelmingly-sized library with too many ridiculous or middling cocktails. Attractive, welcoming, well-designed UI.
