Golden Slipper

Golden Slipper.

It’s close to Christmas again and “Little Lord Fauntleroy” is being repeated on TV. What should you drink with it? We definitely recommend: “Golden Slipper”, at the moment when the eponymous song “Oh Dem Golden Slippers” is played. This takes us back to the time in which the film is set, with a masterfully composed “liqueur”.


40 ml Chartreuse yellow
1 egg yolk
40 ml Danziger Goldwasser
Preparation: Layered. First pour the Chartreuse into the glass. Then position the egg yolk on top. It must not break. Then carefully pour the Goldwasser over a spoon.

Oh, Dem Golden Slippers & Little Lord Fauntleroy

Oh, Dem Golden Slippers is a song composed in 1879 by African American James A. Bland. [1] It is a parody of a spiritual and was a hit in the 1880s. [2]

Even today it is very well known in Germany. Who doesn’t know the scene in the film “Little Lord Fauntleroy” when the little lord stands in front of the orchestra and makes them sing “Oh Dem Golden Slippers”, whereupon the high society starts dancing to it.

This film has been shown by ARD since 1982, [3] and is thus part of the annual Christmas tradition. Everyone will probably have seen it before, so we can dispense with a summary. This year, by the way, it will be shown on 18 December at 8:15 pm.

When you arrive at the orchestral scene, or even before, you should prepare yourself a Golden Slipper, so that not only your ears but also your palate can enjoy it.

The mixed drink

Many may have inhibitions about enjoying this mixed drink nowadays. The raw egg yolk floating in the middle of the glass is too unusual. However, at the time of its creation – first mentioned by Harry Johnson in 1882 – it was extremely popular with the ladies. Harry Johnson first writes of “American ladies”, but in 1888 he writes of ladies from South America. Robert Vermeire is even more precise in 1922 and writes that the drink is very well known in Buenos Aires.

The ingredients listed in the recipes are almost exclusively yellow Chartreuse and Danzig Goldwasser. There are a few exceptions, and these are perhaps partly explained by the fact that other spirits had to be used in the absence of the original ingredients. In 1895, Chris F. Lawlor uses cherry brandy instead of Goldwasser for the first time. In 1907, Frank Newman first suggested Bénédictine instead of Chartreuse. One recipe that really takes some getting used to is the one by Jacques Straub in 1913. He was the first to layer a whole egg in the glass. You shouldn’t do that. In 1920, Ferruccio Mazzon replaces the gold water with a yellow aquavit. In 1920, A. Brehmer thinks that red curaçao can be used instead of Chartreuse. A method of preparation that does not do justice to the drink is the one given by Harry Craddock in 1930. He shakes all the ingredients. From our point of view, this does not suit the drink, because it takes away much of its harmoniousness and makes it more monotonous. Perhaps this method of preparation came about because fewer and fewer people wanted to have a raw egg yolk floating in their glass? In 1935, Leo Cotton thinks you can greatly reduce the chartreuse content and use apricot nectar instead of Goldwasser. 1940 Charles suggests an old brandy as an alternative to Goldwasser.

Harry Craddock’s method of preparation was taken to its logical conclusion by O. Blunier in 1935. He shakes, garnishes with nutmeg and calls the whole thing Golden Slipper Flipp – but the Golden Slipper is not to be understood as a flip.

Since the song that gave it its name was very popular, it is not surprising that Patsy McDonough also published a drink of this name in 1883, with a completely different recipe, but this was not published again in the years that followed. Also in 1951, another recipe for a Golden Slipper was published. It is something quite different and was named in honour of the newly opened Golden Slipper saloon and gambling hall in Las Vegas.

Why do we publish this layered drink?

Harry Johnson: New and Improved Illustrated Bartender's Manual, plate 13. 1888.
Harry Johnson: New and Improved Illustrated Bartender’s Manual, plate 13. 1888. [4-Plate 13]

It is an important drink from a historical perspective. On the one hand, it is a representative of the formerly popular layer drinks, the pousse cafés. For another, it was extremely popular at the time it was created. Harry Johnson not only writes this, but he also underlines his statement by the fact that the Golden Slipper is one of the few drinks to which he dedicates an illustration in his book, on plate 13, directly above the Martini Cocktail. [4-Plate 13]

Even though the use of a whole egg yolk may seem strange to many today, and the thought of the Golden Slipper recipe may seem less than palatable, we have to disagree here.

Yes, it is a sweet drink. After all, it consists almost entirely of liqueurs. So you can’t drink it all the time, but only when something sweet seems appropriate, for example as a dessert. Then it fits perfectly. The Goldwasser harmonises wonderfully with the yellow Chartreuse. And then, at the end, when the egg yolk bursts in the mouth and the contents mix with the yellow Chartreuse, you notice again how perfectly the flavours go together. The combination of these three ingredients shows a very great mastery. This is exactly why you must not use alternative ingredients or even shake the drink!

So you see: what at first glance may seem almost disgusting and unbalanced, sometimes turns out to be a little gem, a masterfully composed mixed drink. One must not be prejudiced, but must consciously engage with some historical conventions in order to discover something new.

Golden Slippers somehow always put me in mind of the

rate, the drink is worthy such a vision and here’s how to mix
one: Into a wine glass with tall slender stem, pour not quite
a half portion of yellow Chartreuse Wine and not quite half
portion of Eau de Vie de Danzig, known to many as “Golden
Water.” Now carefully spoon into this a yolk of one egg,
being careful not to break the yolk. Your charming com
panion at the opera will relish this while you, possibly, are
having a Manhattan as your drink.

About

Hi, I'm Armin and in my spare time I want to promote bar culture as a blogger, freelance journalist and Bildungstrinker (you want to know what the latter is? Then check out "About us"). My focus is on researching the history of mixed drinks. If I have ever left out a source you know of, and you think it should be considered, I look forward to hearing about it from you to learn something new. English is not my first language, but I hope that the translated texts are easy to understand. If there is any incomprehensibility, please let me know so that I can improve it.
