Eye Opener

Eye Opener cocktail with aged rum, apricot liqueur, orange curaçao, grenadine, and egg yolk

This ain’t no sippin’ drink – this is a hangover cure, straight from Robert Hess at SmallScreenNetwork.com. It calls for the yolk of one egg which gives it a velvety texture not unlike Pepto-Bismol, with similar results (we tried it!) As with any drink using egg, you should double-strain before serving to make sure you don’t get any nasty bits.

Ingredients

Instructions

Dry shake the ingredients first (meaning, without ice). Then add ice and shake again. Double-strain into a chilled rocks glass – no ice, so you can pound it down to your tum-tum faster.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

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.
