2 oz Blended Scotch (Cutty Sark Prohibition)
1/2 oz Yellow Chartreuse
1/4 oz Orgeat
1 Whole Egg

Shake once without ice and once with ice and strain into a rocks glass. Dash Angostura Bitters and Peychaud's Bitters across the top of the drink to mimic tiger stripes.
Two Fridays ago, I ventured into the Food & Wine: Cocktails section of my drink book library and selected the 2010 edition. The recipe that called to me was a Flip crafted by Linden Pride at Sydney's Spice Temple which coincided well with the season's dropping temperatures. Once prepared, the peat smoke from the Scotch underneath the egg froth met the nose along with clove, allspice, and anise aromas from the garnish. Next, a creamy sip led into a delightful combination of Scotch, herbal, and almond flavors on the swallow.
