gilded cage

2 oz Vodka (Bak's Bison Grass)
3/4 oz Lemon Juice
3/4 oz Honey Syrup
7 drop Regan's Orange Bitters (Angostura Orange)
1 Egg White

Shake once without ice and once with ice, strain into a coupe glass, and garnish with 5 drop Peychaud's Bitters.
Two Sundays ago, I returned to The Bartender's Manifesto and landed upon Toby Maloney's Gilded Cage that he crafted in 2008 as a riff on the Bee's Knees. To make this vodka egg white drink a bit more interesting, I opted for a bison grass vodka instead which can add spice notes to the finish as I did with the Visionary Cocktail. Here, the Gilded Cage proffered honey, cherry, and anise aromas. Next, a creamy and lemon sip led into honey and a hint of cinnamon on the swallow.
