2 oz. high-proof bourbon (Crunkleton prefers Old Grand Dad 114 proof)
1 oz. heavy cream
1 oz. fresh-squeezed lemon juice, from roughly one lemon
1 oz. honey
1 fresh egg white
2 dashes mole bitters*
Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass or a cocktail shaker. Shake hard for several minutes, then add ice and shake for two minutes more. Strain into a chilled martini or coupe glass. Serve without ice, garnished with a few shakes of nutmeg.
*While Crunkleton uses Bittermens, mole bitters are available from several other suppliers. And if you can’t find them, he says, substitute Angostura or Peychaud’s.
