The Carrauntouhill

2 oz Irish whiskey, Bushmill's
1 oz Averna
12 oz Coffee liqueur, Kahlua
14 oz Heavy cream
1   Egg white
2 ds Chocolate bitters, Bittermens Xocolatl Mole
Dry shake egg white alone (and I do mean some serious shaking needs to be done here as the fat in the cream will actually quash some of the airiness of the frothy whites), a good 1-2 minutes is best. Add remaining ingredients and shake another 45 to 60 seconds with ice to chill. Double strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
Named for the highest peak in Ireland.

I'd leave the cream out: I shook the hell out of it, but the froth dissipated when I added the rest. Maybe some atholl brose instead of the cream?
