Prairie Oyster

This is the most awful drink I've ever made! Really! And I knew it would be. It must be a bit of a joke or perhaps a hangover cure.

The joke is that there are no oysters on the prairie. The substitution here is egg yolk. Why brandy is even an ingredients, I don't know. I can think of many other spirits that would go down better, but that doesn't seem like the point of this drink.

Take it all down in one gulp and that egg yolk slides down your throat. Then you get vinegar and Tabasco sauce burn. It's a sensation drink, and almost none of them are good.
  • 2 oz. brandy
  • 1/2 oz red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 oz. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp. ketchup
  • dash Tabasco sauce
  • ground cayenne pepper
  • egg yolk
Combine all ingredients except egg yolk and cayenne pepper in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled Old Fashioned glass. Float egg yolk on top and dust with cayenne pepper.
