Eden Laurin's Ginger the Housekeeper

Ginger the Housekeeper

  • 1½ ounces North Shore aquavit*
  • ½ ounce Cruzan Black Strap rum*
  • ¼ ounce Licor 43
  • ½ ounce ginger syrup**
  • ¼ ounce fresh lemon juice
  • 1 whole egg
  • grated nutmeg

Combine all ingredients through lemon juice. Break egg into mixture, and mix well before adding ice. Add ice, shake, strain and top with grated nutmeg

* North Shore acquavit and Cruzan Black Strap rum were chosen because they are the current house acquavit and rum at the Violet Hour.

** The ginger syrup can be replaced by ginger beer and simple syrup. Simply use ½ ounce simple syrup in place of the ginger syrup. After shaking and straining the cocktail, top with ½ ounce ginger beer.
