Morning Glory Fizz

A drink that doubles as breakfast.

From the name, it can be assumed this drink by late-1800s bartender Harry Johnson belongs in the canon of classic hair-of-the-dog hangover remedies. A potent blend of Scotch and absinthe, the Morning Glory Fizz’s rough edges are smoothed over with silky egg white and a splash of soda to¬†quell the pangs of a hangover headache. An orange garnish brightens the boozy aroma and calls one to face the day with renewed vigor.
