How would you like your eggs?

In this week’s The Talk of the Town in the New Yorker, Michael Schulman hosted an unofficial summit with egg experts to discuss the recent recall of more than half a billion eggs.  His guests were Dave Arnold from the FCI and Stephen Morse, an epidemiologist at Columbia.  They gathered at L’Ecole and feasted on all things eggy.  I was tickled when I saw this sentence:

He {referring to Morse} sipped his cocktail, a Johnny Apple-Fizz, made with raw egg white shaken into a foam. “Wonderful!” he said.

The fizz was a creation by Marcella, which I helped her tweak.  We were looking for some flavors that would help us ease into fall.   She stopped by my office with a tray full of cocktails (which, delightfully, is a fairly common occurence), and this is what we came up with.

*2 oz. McKenzie Rye
*1 oz. FLD Maplejack
*1 oz. fresh lemon juice
*1 tsp superfine sugar
*1 oz. egg white
*1 oz. soda
*healthy pinch salt
*3 shakes of cinnamon

Combine all ingredients except soda in a shaker and shake vigorously.  Add soda and ice; shake again.  Strain into a chilled martini glass.

The Johnny Apple-Fizz. Light and refreshing, with spiced, apple notes.
