Knickerbein Cocktail

from The Craft of the Cocktail

  • .75 ounce CuraƧao
  • .75 ounce Maraschino Liqueur
  • .75 ounce VS Cognac
  • 1 ounce Egg
  • Nutmeg (Garnish)
  • Orange Zest (Garnish)

Add all the ingredients to a cocktail shaker glass with ice and shake very well to completely emulsify the egg. Serve in a frosted London dock glass and dust with the nutmeg and orange zest.

This is an unusual name for a rich cocktail that will take the place of dessert.
