You know what eggs are. In cocktails, eggs are used for their foaming properties, giving the drink a rich and creamy texture. The eggs proteins form a 'net' that traps air and liquid extremely well; for this reason, drinks that contain eggs are shaken. They are also used for egg washing, a type of booze washing. Some cocktails use only the egg white (fizzes) and some use the whole egg or only the yolk (flips). There are common non-egg substitutes out there, check out insta-foam
1 oz
A distilled, highly alcoholic (45-75% ABV), anise-flavored beverage derived from botanicals like wormwood, green anise, fennel, hyssop, melissa and other herbs. Technically a spirit, as it is not bottled with sugar. The green fairy.
1 oz
A primarily after-dinner spirit made from distilling wine. Generally containing 35-60% ABV and generally aged in wooden casks. Cognac is a famous example of a brandy (produced in the Cognac region of France).
1 tsp
A syrup made from dissolving granulated sugar (sucrose) in water. Regular simple is made by combining 1:1 sugar:water by mass, rich simple is 2:1 sugar:water by mass although only 1.5 times as sweet as regular. We always use 1:1 syrup unless otherwise noted in the recipe itself.
1 dash
A bitters made from Seville oranges, cardamom, caraway seed, coriander and burnt sugar.

Combine egg white, absinthe, brandy, simple syrup and bitters in a shaker. Dry shake, without ice, to emulsify. Add ice and shake again until chilled. Strain into a wineglass. #shake #straight
