Ingredients

  • 1 Egg White
  • 2 Ounces Minute Maid Apple Juice
  • .5 Ounce Light Brown Simple Sugar
  • 1.5 Ounces Sailer Jerry Rum
  • 1 Orange Twist
  • Ground Nutmeg
  • .75 Ounce Maraschino Syrup

Directions

Combine all of the ingredients into tin shaker WITHOUT ice. Make sure to start with egg white first before any of the other ingredients in case part of the shell breaks off. This ensures no liquor is wasted if part of the shell does break off. Dry shake the ingredients/add ice shake again. Strain into chilled coupe. Garnish with nutmeg and orange twist. Do not make twist above the drink as you usually would- it will make the head from the egg white dissipate.

Cocktail Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
