From other users
  • Very good made with Byrrh instead of red wine. It does sink, though, rather than float. A gentle stir is needed. — ☆☆☆☆
  • Nice use of Byrrh... — ☆☆☆
  • 12/24/17: 2 oz Wild Turkey 101, 3/4 oz lemon, 1/2 oz 2:1 simple, 1 egg white, 3/4 oz ruby port. Might just put wine into shaker next time. — ☆☆☆☆
  • Use an egg white. — ☆☆☆☆
