Rigor Mortis



  • 6 drops Absinthe
  • 1½ oz Bourbon
  • ¾ oz Fresh Grapefruit Juice
  • ½ oz Maple Syrup
  • 1 Egg White (or 1½ oz Liquid Egg Whites)
  • 1 dash Angostura Bitters

  • Dry shake the egg white in a cocktail shaker for 30 seconds, burping every 10 seconds. Add the 6 drops of absinthe, bourbon, maple syrup and fresh grapefruit juice with ice and shake vigorously. Strain into an old-fashioned glass.

  • Top with a dash of the angostura bitters.

Despite its name, this is a delicious drink! You’ll have to believe us. Don’t panic! It won’t cause your mortal end because of an inability to release the coupling of your muscle’s myosin and actin. We named it for the foaming head – like a corpse foaming at the mouth and stiff as a board. The egg white gives the drink its signature foaminess. Contrary to the name, this drink should loosen you up with the combination of bourbon, absinthe and maple syrup that gives it it’s rich sweet flavor.
