Hazardous ingredients

This recipe contains a number of ingredients that are potentially hazardous to those with allergy or intolerance:

Review:

Faintly peaty honeyed whisky with a cleansing hint of lemon, rounded by almond. Classically, egg white is not used, but like many sours, the Cameron's Kick is better with egg white.

Variant:

Strained into a Collins glass filled with crushed ice and swizzled.

History:

The Cameron's Kick first appears in Harry MacElhone's 1922 ABC of Mixing Cocktails and is repeated in Harry Craddock's 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book.
