Egg on your guests to try something a little unusual this Christmas: Guinness, Gin, Tequila or Bourbon as well as chocolate, vanilla or even pink peppercorns can go with an Eggnog. Although traditionally called an egg or milk punch and based on rum or brandy, it takes any extra flavours well.
Born in Britain as an egg flip heated with a red-hot poker, the Eggnog drink took off – and was chilled down – in the US, its name coming from wooden mugs known as ‘noggins’. It’s since become a festive favourite, shared with friends and family over the Thanksgiving and holiday period.
So if you’re incubating ideas for your Christmas party
, or planning a house party
with a difference, make sure the Eggnog plays a part. Hatch your cocktail plan, and make it happen. An Eggnog cocktail
is the froth on your party, a winter warmer with the feeling of abundance that’s so right for this time of year.
