Fictional boxer/brain damage enthusiast Rocky Balboa famously drank a few raw eggs as he trained for his failed bid against the superior fighter Apollo Creed in the classic movie Rocky. Now, you can do the same in a much tastier way as we explore some of Oklahoma City’s finest cocktails featuring eggs.

For a fruity treat, it’s hard to go wrong with O Bar’s Clover Club cocktail. Egg white, lemon juice, simple syrup and muddled raspberries are joined with gin in a way that will have you asking every bartender you see to crack an egg in your glass.

Watch out for devious ducks and diminutive duelers as you down WSKY’s delicious What’s Up Doc-tail from its new seasonal menu. Flavor- packed from the get-go, this drink includes 12-year-old El Dorado rum, Ancho Reyes Ancho Chile Liqueur, egg white, lemon, simple syrup and a spirited kick of ginger beer. But you’ll really feel your ears twitch when you taste the carrot juice, you wascal.

A party for the eyes and the mouth, the 7th Street Hibiscus Fizz from Ludivine gets its signature effervescence from egg whites, but the color is pure Campari aperitif, Hibiscus Strong Tonic and grapefruit. Add in gin, bitters and agave syrup and you might drink it down before you remember to take a picture.

Whiskey and eggs — they’re not just things your unemployed uncle has every morning. At The Lobby Cafe & Bar at Will Rogers Theatre, the Japanese Fizz is a sweet concoction with a base of whiskey, a tart twist of lemon and the sweetness of simple syrup and ruby port, all with a frothed-up egg white in the mix. Do you want another? Hai!

The secret to Whiskey Cake’s Oklahoma Redbud is that it’s shaken twice: once dry, with egg white, blueberry-infused Veev acai spirit, lemon juice and simple syrup to add frothy texture and again with ice to cool it down. Then it’s strained into a glass and topped with Prosecco sparkling Italian wine for a refreshing twist on the classic French 75.

With the Friends Like These cocktail at Scratch, you might need a ride home. This original blend of vodka and house-made coffee liqueur is a riff on a White Russian with cream, egg white, blackstrap molasses bitters and even Cynar, an artichoke liqueur. Don’t expect this coffee to keep you up, though. You’ll need a cup of joe on the side to do that job.
