Cocktails for a Romantic Dinner

Oh, those Victorian jokesters! If you craved a cup of coffee but were trying to cut back on caffeine, they had a three shot cocktail to fool the eyes, if not the tongue. Allegedly, the mix of these ingredients looked like a cup of coffee on ice. After a couple glasses of the substitute, one would either pass out or start a bar fight. It was all worth it to avoid those pesky stimulants, right?

To mix this, fill a shaker half way with ice. Crack your egg into it, add everything else, and shake like you’re trying to cold scramble your breakfast. Pour the result into a coffee mug full of ice and prepare for the look of uncaffeinated despair when you serve a depressant to someone craving their morning stimulant.

This is a lot like a single serving of egg nog. Fill a cocktail shaker half way with ice. Crack in your egg, add the brandy, sugar and vanilla, then hold the shaker near your belt and give it a good, enthusiastic shake. When you remove the cap, the foamy white blend may enthusiastically spew forward. Assure people this is a sign of your enthusiasm. Strain the remainder into a well iced lowball glass and sprinkle a dash of cinnamon on top. This is an excellent drink for a gentleman’s club.

Think of this as the Long Island Iced Tea of its day. You put in a little bit of everything plus some cheap mixers and through the miracles of chemistry you ended up with a surprisingly palatable drink. In this case, modern drinkers may want to reduce the Vermouth down to a mere whisper while increasing the quantity of sugar.

Add all your ingredients to an icy cocktail shaker and beat it like you’re oppressing ungrateful natives. Pour the result into a lightly iced lowball glass and pretend the middling amount of protein in the egg is enough to prevent you from getting drunk off three shots.
