This cocktail dates from 1908 and was described by Charles H. Baker as the perfect cocktail for “whenever the climate is hot and the humidity high and stomachs stage sit-down strikes and view all thought of food—present or future—with entire lack of enthusiasm.”
Guys, I had A LOT of problems with this cocktail. First time, the lid came off the shaker and I swear to god I’m still finding stains from the cocktail that went everywhere. The second time, I was taking the eggs out of the fridge, dropped them, and broke EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. Aarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgh!!!!!!!!!!!! Anyway, I finally made it because I wasn’t about to let this cocktail get the better of me, and it didn’t taste that great. The end.
