Egg Sour

The whole egg sour recipe in the New York Bartender's Guide is a brandy drink. Go figure. I'm finding that egg and brandy drinks are great if you use Copper and Kings brandy, which is strong and clean tasting. That's useful when the rest of the cocktail is so rich.

The fun thing about a whole egg sour is that it is so rich and creamy as well as tart. This is an egg cocktail lover's drink. Of course freshness of ingredients really counts here. For the drink and the photo I used Andean blue eggs. You can almost see the blue tint of the shell. But a fresh and healthy chicken egg makes a big difference when a raw egg is the main ingredient in a drink.
  • 2 oz. brandy (Copper and Kings used)
  • 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp. Cointreau
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar
  • whole egg
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled sour glass.
