Your Cocktail Just Woke Up
Welcome to the
What is the Cocktail Egg? It's a delicious hard-cooked quail egg pickled in a tangy brine of vinegar and spices. From the creaminess of the yolk to the sweet-sour bite of the white, the Cocktail Egg is a perfectly textured garnish for a classic evening cocktail or savory Bloody Mary.
Try ordering one at a bar and watch for curious glances from those around you. As you enjoy your drink you'll have one problem to wrestle with: Will you eat the egg right away or save it until the end? Our favorite is somewhere in the last third of the drink, when the egg has absorbed the flavor of the cocktail.
Ray's Cocktail Eggs will soon be available for bars and retail sale. If you'd like to be notified when they're released, please join our mailing list. We will never share our list or spam you, and we will totally fight anyone who does.
How the idea was hatched
After co-owning a bar for 20 years, Scott Kravitz knew the cocktail world pretty well. But with a new child on the way, he was spending less time going out. That's when he started making pickled eggs at home - a treat he had only seen in old movies. It was his friend Dmitry who said, "what if you tried this with quail eggs?"
Scott suddenly imagined an egg inside a drink, instead of beside the drink.
He worked on the recipe for over a year, struggling to create an egg that tasted great on its own, but didn't clash with the gin in a martini. It had to be subtle, but delicious.
Meet The Team
Scott didn't leave a high paying corporate job to start Ray's Pickled Eggs. He didn't have one to begin with. What he did have was passion and enough inexperience to think that starting a food business would be relatively straighforward.
