Elk's Own

The second in our port cocktail series.

2 oz rye
1 oz port
1/2 oz lemon juice
1 egg white
1 tsp sugar

Shake vigorously.

The verdict:  Man, that's good.  Man, that's dangerously good, and I'm not talking about Salmonella.  For the uninitiated, egg white is a classic ingredient in cocktails.  It's what creates that frothy head and a smooth silky texture.

Update!  Found some history on this cocktail.  It's an old one from St. Paul Minnisota.
