Here is a fun idea. We did an egg white mudslide made with a few ingredients you wouldn't normally see. The egg white foam is something I like to do with a lot of drinks as it adds a layer of depth and texture. Popular drinks for an egg white include Pisco/Sour, Whiskey/Sour, a Cable Car or Side Car but you can essentially add it to any drink you feel could use a little panache. Egg whites don't have much flavor for those of you worried about any type of smell or taste. I have watched videos, talked to dozens of bartenders and never have I heard about salmonella poisoning from the raw egg. I think the fruit juice acid and alcohol take care of that.
To make this drink requires a little more time an effort but it is well worth it. A traditional Mudslide is Vodka, Irish Cream and Kahlua. I used regular vodka, but added pumpkin flavored Kahlua (readily available) and I made my own Irish Cream. After adding a 3/4 shot of each to a mixing tin I then had to create the egg white foam which is basically an emulsion where air is suspended in the egg whites. To do this you do a dry shake in another mixing tin to break down the protein and pack as much air into the cocktail. Then you add the 3 liquors and ice and shake vigorously. After shaking you want to use a fine strainer to make sure you don't have any chunks of ice or possible egg shell.
