In honor of tomorrow evening's long anticipated LUPEC meeting, I thought I'd share with you a preview of drinks to come. One of our featured cocktails will be....
the Mae West Cocktail
Yolk of 1 egg
1 tsp. Powdered Sugar
1 Glass Brandy: I'm using Laird's Applejack actually--it's a bit sweeter but not overbearing, and tastes divine
Shake well and strain into a medium sized glass. Top with a dash of Cayenne Pepper.
It's not sweet really, so much as full in the mouth & rich and creamy the palate. The spicy cayenne is a delight with the hot booziness of the brandy. Full, rich, and spicy: just like the old broad herself.
