Egg Sour

Egg Sour classic cocktail with brandy, orange curaçao, a whole egg, simple syrup, and lemon juice

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.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
