Sherry and Egg Cocktail

010

Sherry and Egg Cocktail.
Place an Egg in Large Port Wine Glass, being careful not to break the yolk. Fill glass with Sherry (Solear Manzanilla Sherry).

Yep, that’s an egg in sherry. Wait, is that like a sherried, er, shired, egg? Breakfast of Champions?

This cocktail actually goes all the way back to Jerry Thomas’ Bartender’s Guide.

All the same, hm, of these sorts of whole raw egg cocktails, I have to say this was probably the least enjoyable so far. I hate to say it, but it sort of made the Prairie Hen seem appealing.

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.
