The man could talk, as evidenced by his “fireside chats,” that series of radio addresses given during the Great Depression.
This Fireside Chat is different, though. Because rather than a radio broadcast, it’s actually a cocktail (so, an upgrade) from the J. Parker, that Chicago restaurant where rooftop excellence abounds. It’s a study in the synergy between rum, coffee and whole eggs, so to participate, drink one on-site or make it at home.
And while this drink won’t discuss New Deal initiatives, it’s a great listener.
Tastes pretty good, too.
1 1/2 oz Brugal Añejo rum
1/2 oz Fernet-Branca
1/2 oz St. George NOLA coffee liqueur
1/2 oz demerara syrup
2 dashes mole bitters
1 whole egg
Shake all ingredients without ice. Then shake again with ice until cold, and strain into a glass. Garnish with grated nutmeg.
