    DEB LINDSEY/THE WASHINGTON POST

 

ounce light cream

1 large egg

1 teaspoon confectioners' sugar

ounce dry Madeira

ounce brandy, preferably cognac or Armagnac

ounce aged rum

Ice cubes

2-2 ounces whole milk

Whole nutmeg

Combine the cream, egg, sugar, Madeira, brandy and rum in a cocktail shaker. Shake to mix well, then add ice cubes and shake for 30 seconds. Strain into a Collins glass filled with ice cubes.

Fill the glass with the milk, and stir gently. Grate a little of the nutmeg on the surface.

Serves one.

Note: This recipe calls for a raw egg. If you are concerned about the risk of salmonella, buy pasteurized eggs, available in select supermarkets. For the Madeira, be sure to use a dry one such as Blandy's 5-year-old Sercial.
