Exhibit #61: Egg-stravaganza II
It's that time...Easter bunny time...time to break out the eggs, and lots of them. Our second annual Easter Cocktail Museum will focus exclusively on the incredible, drinkable egg.
Some things to know: eggs do not add flavor to a drink, nor do they make them slimy. More often they add a silky texture while melding and softening the flavors of the other ingredients. Fear not!
Also important - please note that we will be closed during the day for Easter, but will open for dinner at 5:30.

The same one we served in the fall, now at the very mellow 9 month mark. Cognac, rum, madeira wine, eggs, milk, cream, sugar, nutmeg.
