What I’m Drinking: Underlined Passages
Somehow I came up with this when reading J. Robert Lennon stories. And it’s a darn good drink. A wee sweet, but well-balanced by the richness of the egg and the kick of the brandy. Dang, that’s sorta like Lennon. Maybe? Maybe. You read him and find out and let me know. One thing that’s totally for sure (like, for sure), is that if you want to create a drink this amazing, you’d better delve into the J. Robert Lennon oeuvre. You’d better.
Underlined Passages, from Ginger Bliss and the Violet Fizz
1-1/2 ounces brandy
1 ounce Navan vanilla liqueur
1/2 ounce Dumante Verdenoce pistachio liqueur
1 egg white, preferably organic
1. Fill a cocktail shaker halfway full with ice cubes. Add the brandy, Navan, Dumante, and egg white. Shake exceptionally well.
2. Strain into a cocktail glass.
Is Navan available in the US?
Hello! I think I selfishly thought that since I still had a bottle, everyone could get one — but it is harder to track down now, as it seems they’ve stopped making it. There are still some bottles around, but not readily it seems. I would try subbing in Licor 43 here if you can’t find the Navan. Though it’ll be a bit different, still darn tasty. Cheers!
