2 ounces rye whiskey (suggested: Sazerac 6-year)
3/4 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 ounce pure maple syrup (Grade B preferred)
1/2 ounce of egg white or the white of a small farm egg
Angustura bitters garnish, or freshly grated nutmeg
- Without ice, in a cocktail shaker quickly shake the cocktail ingredients to emulsify the egg.
- Next, add ice and shake for 10 seconds and strain into a coupe glass.
- Using an eye dropper, deposit a ring of bitters drops on the egg white, then drag a toothpick through the circle to create a “starry nights” effect. Or, grate fresh nutmeg on top.
