Jerry appears on "Today" with Bryant Gumbel, but must wear a silly shirt as the result of a misunderstanding with Kramer's "low talker" girlfriend; George moves in with his parents.
The Puffy Shirt began as an attempt to create a fizz that was orange in colour, and it has gone on a rather long, strange journey since then. Since we wanted the fizz to be orange, aperol was one of the first ingredients we chose, and gin, lemon juice, and yellow Chartreuse were natural compliments. We tweaked the amounts of each, added an egg white and some soda water, and that was that - or so we thought.
One member of the team was invited to a cocktail pitch meeting for the suberb Calgary cocktail haunt Cannibale, and he pitched the Puffy Shirt. During that cocktail meeting, the Puffy Shirt changed from a fizz to a more traditional sour, and a little sweetness was added to satisfy a wider variety of palates. The Puffy Shirt ended up on the menu for a number of months. You can make one at home using our recipe, or you can see if the bartenders over at Cannibale still know how to make one.
What you need
- bourbon for rinse
- 1 oz. London dry gin
- 0.5 oz. Aperol
- scant 0.5 oz. yellow Chartreuse
- scant 0.5 oz. triple sec
- 0.75 oz. lemon juice
- 0.25 oz. simple syrup
- 1 egg white
- 2 dashes Angostura bitters
How it's made
Rinse a coupe glass in bourbon and dump. Shake all of the ingredients other than the bitters without ice in a cocktail shaker for about 15-20 seconds. Add ice and shake for another 8-10 seconds. Double strain into a coupe glass and add the bitters so that they look nice on top of the egg whites.
