(I will be talking a little more about Strega before Halloween).
The Bay Harbour Butcher
30ml lemon juice
10ml Liquore Strega
Dash of raspberry puree
1 egg white
Combine all ingredients and dry shake, then shake again with ice.
Fine strain into a chilled coup and make blood-splatter-like dashes on top of the froth with Peychaud's bitters.
If you don't have raspberry liqueur handy, a great substitute (and one I use in Clover Clubs as well) is the award-winning Raspberry Liqueur by Okanagan Spirits. It's a surprisingly tart and dry liqueur made with real raspberries.
