Prairie Oyster Cocktail

Prairie Oyster Cocktail

Prairie Oyster Cocktail.

2 Dashes Vinegar. (Malt Vinegar)
The Yolk of 1 Egg.
1 Teaspoonful Worcestershire Sauce. (From the UK!)
1 Teaspoonful Tomato Catsup. (Chefs Brand Ketchup)
1 Dash of Pepper on Top.

Do not break the Yolk of Egg.

Similar to the Prairie Hen, but only the yolk this time.

While I will recommend you serve this with a shot back, I don’t really get what the big deal is.

It’s just a raw egg, is that so terrifying?

Man (or Woman) up, fer cripes sake!

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.

A little Pepper and Salt.

Do not break the Egg.

Yuppers, that’s a whole egg with some stuff dashed on.

Irish Supplies

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.
