Hazardous ingredients

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

Review:

Chocolate cocktail with extra interest thanks to vanilla and cardamom.

History:

Created in 2003 by Simon King at MJU Bar, Millennium Hotel, London, England. The egg white was our addition to Simon's recipe - it seemed appropriate to add egg given this is an Easter cocktail. We also added the orange zest nest of chocolate eggs.

Alcohol content:

  • 1.6 standard drinks
  • 21.94% alc./vol. (43.88° proof)
