Rattlesnake

Rattlesnake cocktail with rye whiskey and maple syrup

The original 1930s version of The Savoy Cocktail Book said this drink “will either cure a rattlesnake bite, or kill rattlesnakes, or make you see them.” ‘Nuff said.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake a bit without ice (that’s called a “dry shake”) to incorporate the egg white, then add ice and shake again. Strain into chilled cocktail glasses.

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.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
