I'm not 100% sure where this

I'm not 100% sure where this cocktail was first made, but the earliest mention I can find on the internet is from Toby Maloney on eGullet:

I've been able to make something similar without Sweet Lucy by upping the bourbon to 1.25 ounces (I used Bulleit), using 3/4 ounce of an orange liqueur (Torres or Marie Brizard), and adding about 2-3 dashes of Fee's Peach bitters. It's definitely an imperfect substitute since there's brandy involved, but if I suddenly have a spare egg yolk it's what I make when I don't have Sweet Lucy.
