Egg Custard

Why 2 oz?: This is the star of the show! It's a custardy base that provides the body and smooth texture. Less would make the drink too thin, more could be overwhelmingly rich. Without it, it wouldn't be an Egg Custard Crush!

Mary Mitkina


Why 1 oz?: Vodka is the silent partner here. It gives a kick to the cocktail without overpowering the delicate flavors. If you go overboard, you'll mask the custard's taste; too little, and the cocktail might feel underwhelming.

Mary Mitkina

Lemon Juice

Why 0.5 oz?: Just enough to add a zesty brightness that cuts through the richness. Any more would sour the delicate balance, any less could leave the cocktail flat. Lemon juice is key to providing a refreshing contrast.

Alex Green


Why 1 tsp?: It's the sweet whisper that ties everything together. More sugar could turn the drink into a syrupy mess, less might not combat the tartness of the lemon juice. Balance is vital here.

Ice Cubes

Why as needed?: Ice cools everything down and ensures a frothy texture when shaken. Too much ice and you'll drown out the flavors, too little, and the drink won't be chilled enough.
