A few Mondays ago, I turned to the Experimental Cocktail Club Cocktail Book for the evening's libation. There, I was enchanted with one from E.C.C. Chinatown (NYC) by Alex Skarlen who was influenced by the Martinez Sour, a Martinez with lemon juice and egg white that reminds me of Maloney's Martinez Bell Ringer with egg white added in but without Maloney's signature apricot brandy rinse. Indeed, Alex added to the idea by ripping off classic cocktails like the Manhattan and the Sazerac and combining them into the same glass.
