Naturally, when I came across this drink it peaked my attention if for no other reason than we share a "first" name. It is one of the older cocktails (1903, The Flowing Bowl) and many drinks of this era could be considered egg-heavy. In this case I think 1 egg is too much as is called for in the original recipe. So, as not to waste egg I've adapted this recipe into a "drink for two" which means you only get half the egg but all of the extra body you need. Otherwise it is a splendid cocktail that combines rye whiskey with two great herbal liqueurs.
