Prairie Hen Cocktail.
2 Dashes Vinegar.
1 Teaspoonful Worcestershire Sauce.
2 Dashes Tabasco Sauce.
A little Pepper and Salt.
Do not break the Egg.
Yuppers, that’s a whole egg with some stuff dashed on.
In the spirit of making the most authentic Savoy Prairie Hen possible, I traveled out to the Roxy Grocery Store in the sunset where they sell Irish and British goods. Picked up some UK malt vinegar, some UK Worcestershire, and some Chef Brand Ketchup.
Having armored myself with these bastions of quality, I cracked the egg into the glass, dashed on the ingredients, and sucked it down.
I really do recommend chasing it with a shot of whiskey. Or maybe tequila. Disinfectant properties and all.
This post is one in a series documenting my ongoing effort to make all of the cocktails in the Savoy Cocktail Book, starting at the first, Abbey, and ending at the last, Zed.
