Review:

It's the dry sparkling wine that has the last word in this beautifully integrated and complex foaming sour.

History:

Adapted from a recipe in William Schmidt's 1892 The Flowing Bowl.

The Evening Sun
(For four.)
In a large glass,
The juice of a large lemon,
2 barspoons of powdered sugar,
fill the glass with chopped ice,
space a drink of fine brandy,
a pony of green chartreuse,
½ pony of crême de roses,
the whites of 2 eggs.
Shake this to the freezing-point.
In four glasses divide a pint of dry champagne; strain your ingredients into these four glasses very slowly, and serve.

William Schmidt, 1892
