Stonybrook

I really liked the intense orange and nutty flavors of this cocktail. Yes, there is orange in there, but it is not a citrus drink at all. Triple sec is flavored with orange zest, not juice, and egg white and creme de noyaux soften and sweeten the drink. What you get is a burst of liqueurs with a silky texture and a pretty pink color.

I doubled down on the orange zest by substituting MurLarkey's orange whiskey for plain blended whiskey. It really improves the cocktail. You have to try it to understand.
  • 1 1/2 oz. blended whiskey (MurLarkey orange whiskey used)
  • 1/2 oz. triple sec
  • 1/2 oz. creme de noyaux (Tempis Fugit used)
  • 1/2 egg white (Or one whole egg white for two)
  • lemon or orange twist or both
Combine all ingredients except for citrus zests in a shaker with ice. Shake vigorously and strain to remove ice. Return liquid to a shaker without ice and shake again to increase foam. Pour into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with lemon or orange twists.
