Juice 1 Lime (3/4 oz)
1 tsp Grenadine (1/2 oz)
1 dash Curaçao (1/2 oz Senior)
White of 1 Egg
Shake once without ice and once with ice, and strain into a glass crusted with sugar. I added a long lime peel around the top interior diameter; as an afterthought, freshly grated nutmeg or a few droplets of aromatic bitters would not be out of place here on the egg white froth.
A few Saturdays ago, I was perusing Pioneers of Mixing at Elite Bars: 1903-1933 when I spotted another curious Crusta recipe that included egg white like the Niagara Crusta from that same tome. And like a few other Crusta recipes in that book, this one also left out the bitters that seemed to be a hallmark feature of classic Crusta recipes. Regardless, it seemed worthy of a try even if it was an outlier for a few reasons.
