Hazardous ingredients

Egg white is potentially hazardous if used incorrectly.

Our comment:

Spicy rye whiskey with a hint of absinthe smoothed by thick meringue-like lemony egg white.

History:

The Rattlesnake first appeared as a recipe for six people in Harry Craddock's 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book with the notation, "So-called because it will either cure Rattlesnake bite, or kill Rattlesnakes, or make you see them."

This recipe, and the drink's newfound popularity, is influenced by a modern-day adaption by Will Elliott at Maison Premiere, Brooklyn, New York City, USA.
