I know I do. Ingredients: - Angostura Bitters - Granulated Demerara Sugar Instructions: 1. In chilled glass pour a bar spoon of Demerara sugar, coat with some Angostura. 2. In shaker add egg white, 2 oz Rye (As spicy as you got), and 1/2 oz Arrakis Syrup (recipe below) 3. Dry shake (no ice), then shake with ice. 4. Strain into glass. Let foam rise. 5. Garnish with cinnamon stick, ground nutmeg and cinnamon. ALSO! This drink works great if just built in the glass without an eggwhite. In that sense it becomes a wonderful Arrakis Old Fashioned. For Arrakis Syrup: Shred some (1/2 or 1 full cup) fresh ginger and break up some cinnamon sticks (2 or 3) in a pot, add half a cup of brown sugar, and half a cup of water. Bring to a quick boil and stir until sugar is dissolved. Let steep for about 30 minutes, then strain into vessel of your choosing.
