Hazardous ingredients

Pasteurised egg white is potentially hazardous to those with allergy or intolerance.

Review:

The name should perhaps serve as a warning, as should the whopping ounce-and-a-half of Angostura Bitters in this recipe, and intense Angostura flavour dominates this bittersweet lime sour.

Variant:

See also Trinidad Especial and Trinidad Sour

History:

Adapted from a drink created in 2009 by Maks Pazuniak and Kirk Estopinal who were inspired by the Angostura Fizz (AKA Trinidad Fizz) in Charles H. Baker's 1939 The Gentleman's Companion (Volume II).
