Cheers! I know everyone is breaking out the eggnog right now but I have a confession to make … I’m not a huge fan. I know, I know. I just can’t. That and beer which I know has nothing to do with eggnog but all the same I just must pass. I don’t have anything against eggs. Not at all. I happen to adore those. Maybe it’s the nog I’m opposed to. Although I am okay with eggnog baked french toast. Maybe it’s just drinking it for me. Who knows. I am however a fan of the cocktail. If you’re a fan of old time cocktails this will be particularly appealing to you. It’s a cocktail that predates prohibition.
That foamy head going on, no it’s not beer. This particular cocktail happens to have an egg white in it. Using eggs in cocktails isn’t as odd as it might initially sound. The egg white gives the drink body and IF you use Davidson’s Safest Choice pasteurized eggs you don’t have to worry. You can learn more about Safest Choice pasteurization process and find store locations near you.
This cocktail is fun festive and frothy! If you can shake and strain you’re golden.
TIP: To make raspberry simple syrup simply muddle (bash up) desired amount of fresh raspberries into simple syrup.
