Toast Your Health with Amber Moon

The Amber Moon cocktail has been around for a long time. Back in the 1800s, cracking raw eggs into alcohol was considered a ‘miner’s breakfast’. The burning sensation left after having whisky was soothed by drinking beer with raw eggs. In Amber Moon, eggs and whisky are combined and the whisky cocktail becomes a healthy drink that can cure a hangover.

Even though its origins are uncertain, it has been referenced in popular culture for almost a century. It has appeared in several shows, such as Cocktail, The Addams Family Values, Cabaret, and Cowboy Bebop. In the movie adaptation of Agatha Christie’s crime thriller, The Murder of the Orient Express, Amber Moon was served as a breakfast drink to the man who turned out to be dead.

Despite its popularity, this cocktail has a selective audience. While some may wince knowing that its ingredients are egg, whisky, and tabasco sauce, others may consider it to be a boon for fitness enthusiasts. A protein-packed drink with minimal calories, Amber Moon can make for a good addition to your morning meal. It has a generous hit of tabasco which gives the drink a taste boost. A nice and distinct peated whisky adds in the right intoxicant you need to brighten your day. We recommend concocting this drink with Scapa Glansa, Lagavulin 16 year old, or The Glenlivet 12 year old.

The Process

Nothing can be easier that cracking an egg in a highball glass, pour in 89 ml of whisky and add a dash of tabasco, depending on how spicy you like your cocktail. You will only need to ensure that while gently stirring the drink, the yolk remains intact and does not get mixed in the clear liquid mixture. Serve at room temperature and enjoy with a like-minded group of friends.


Boozy Barley Soup for the Early Winters

Can you imagine winters without soups? Most meals remain incomplete without that bowl of piping hot and yummy bowl of soup. And now you can add a dash of Scotch to make it more appetizing. The Scotch Barley soup is a homely, hearty and comforting start to a meal when the temperatures drop.

ONE FOR YOUR INNER DEMONS: THE SATAN’S CIRCUS

atan's Circus comes to us from the NoMad Hotel Bar which is located in the 'Tenderloin' neighbourhood of New York. In the 19th century, this area was popularly called 'Satan's Circus' due to the concentration of saloons, bars, brothels, and the two cornerstones of the city's fine dining and craft cocktail culture: the great Delmonico's and Jerry Thomas' New York Bar. Thus, this cocktail definitely pays a homage to the history. Satan's Circus is a simple concoction of rye whiskey, lime, chile-infused Aperol, and Heering Cherry Liqueur. This exquisite blend of fresh lemon juice and Heering Cherry Liqueur lends the rye whisky a tone of sweetness along with an added depth. The chile-infused Aperol adds the much needed kick and offers a sinfully subtle and spicy finish. Give your very own twist to it with a splash of Old Overholt Straight Rye Whiskey, Bulleit 95 Rye Small Batch Frontier Whiskey, or Sazerac 6 Year Old Straight Rye Whiskey.
