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.

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
