Left over egg whites & lemon juice tend to focus the mind of the cocktail afficionado on the drink cabinet. A quick scan of the literature gave Harry Craddock's rattlesnake, the Savoy book gives the quantities for 6. In my glasses it came to 4.
4 parts whiskey
2 parts sweetened lemon juice
2 egg whites
1 barspoon absinthe
Ends up as a smooth dry cocktail that went suprisingly well with the treacle tart
