Morning Glory Fizz!

The trick with this you’ve got to drink it quickly. At least that’s the idea this drink and the fizz category in general.  The title suggests this drink was conceived to be consumed first thing in the morning with what one can assume is a truly epic hangover. Perhaps a bit on the sweet side, the absinthe and scotch nicely balance each other and the lemon and lime provide a subtle back drop. A very interesting drink, old timey goodness through and through. 

2 oz Blended scotch (Johnny Walker Red)
1/2 oz lemon
1/4 lime
3/4 tbsp simple syrup (2-1 Demerara)
3-4 dashes absinthe 
1/2 egg white (modern eggs are bigger than their forebearers)

Shake with shaved ice very vigoriously, strain into an 8oz glass and top with seltzer/club soda. Drink immediately.
