MiXOLOGY: The Chicken, The Cranberry and The Gold

By OckyDub | Posted Oct 18 2013 | 3 Comments  


Cypher Ave presents three drinks in this edition of Mixology.  Even though we are thinking outside of the box with this first cocktail, we can’t help but confess it sounds like something you would have to drink if you lost a dare. We give you The Chicken, The Cranberry and The Gold.

The Chicken

The Chicken


  • Extra Dry Gin (we suggest Bombay Sapphire or Seagram’s)
  • Raw egg yolk
  • Salt and pepper

How to Mix
Glass: Cognac or Wine

  • Crack one egg into glass
  • Garnish with salt and pepper

If anyone out there has tried this, please share your experience. LOL

This past summer Ciroc and P Diddy rolled out Ciroc Amaretto nationwide.  At 70 proof or 35% alcohol, Amaretto sells for about $35 bucks.  So far the reviews have been positive on this latest flavor.  Check out the two recipes below.
