2 oz Rye
1⁄2 oz Maple syrup (grade b)
1⁄2 Egg white (one egg should be sufficient for two drinks)
1 Lemon peel (for garnish)

Combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker and shake well, without ice, until the egg white is good and foamy, about 10-15 seconds. Add ice and shake again another 10 seconds; strain into chilled cocktail glass. Prepare your broad twist of lemon and go in for the kill.

Note that Beretta seems to have just replaced the classic sweetener with maple syrup, absinthe with Peychaud's, and retained the name of a classic drink: the original may be found in the 1930 Savoy Cocktail Book.

Drinking the Devil's Acre (p. 173) includes a whole egg white, and doesn't bother with the dry shake. The drink is attributed to Harry Craddock, adapted by Thad Vogler, courtesy of Bar Agricole.
