I was reading through a classic cocktail recipe book and came across a flip. I love anything egg related and really wanted to recreate a version of this adventurous and rich cocktail. After a particularly busy night at work, falling asleep can be hard, so I decided to listen to a sleep story called something like, Moroccan Nights. Needless to say, I fell asleep dreaming about delicious figs and savory spices. Side note, this also prompted the idea for the name Marrakesh Express, which is also a great song by Crosby, Stills and Nash. The Torres brandy and orange liqueur were a match made in heaven and worked along nicely with slight fruit forwardness of the fig syrup. To top it all off with a tart and effervescent Prosecco hits the spot and the nutmeg ties it all together. I found myself making believers of drinking a whole, raw egg because this drink is so damn good. And has a lot of protein to boot.
1 ½ oz Torres Brandy
¾ oz Fig syrup
1 oz Fresh lemon juice
1 Whole egg
Dry shake, wet shake, double strain, serve up. Top with Prosecco and fresh grated nutmeg.
*Skin figs and blend, add equal parts sugar and water, strain.
