If you're looking for a "millionaire" cocktail, you may get confused by all of the variations. Much like the corpse reviver, it was a popular name for Prohibition-era cocktails and the recipes can vary greatly. This particular recipe is typically simply called the "millionaire" (no "cocktail") and even it has been tweaked many times over the years.
This recipe is one of the two most popular millionaires. The other is a rum, brandy, and sloe gin mix typically referred to as a millionaire cocktail no. 1. Both are excellent classic cocktails that you should consider trying.
In this millionaire, you'll find a tempting mix of whiskey, orange, grenadine, and raspberry. The egg white gives it a wonderfully soothing texture that makes it a great dessert drink.
Gather the ingredients.
In a cocktail shaker, pour the whiskey, curaçao, crème de framboise, grenadine, and egg white.
Shake well, then add ice and shake for at least 30 seconds to ensure the egg is completely mixed.
Serve and enjoy.
Raw Egg Warning
Consuming raw and lightly-cooked eggs poses a risk for food-borne illness.
- Try this cocktail with a few different whiskeys to see which you enjoy most. The spice of rye is a fantastic contrast to all the sweet fruits. If you opt for bourbon over rye whiskey, look for bottles that have a high concentration of rye.
- Crème de framboise is a raspberry-flavored liqueur. You can substitute others if you like; Chambord is the most popular and very easy to find.
- Whenever adding an egg to cocktails, ensure that it's fresh. For a quick test, fill a glass with water and drop the egg inside. If it sinks, it's good; floating eggs should be discarded.
- One version of this recipe adds 4 dashes of absinthe or pastis, skips the crème de framboise, and uses 1/2 ounce of lemon juice. Sometimes as much as 1/4 ounce of absinthe is recommended.
- You can also rinse the glass with absinthe or another anise-flavored liqueur. This option is used often in cocktails, such as the Sazerac, to add just a hint of the flavor commonly associated with black licorice.
- Another version skips the crème de framboise and uses up to 1 ounce of grenadine instead.
