About this Cocktail

23/12/14 @demonbitters

This may have passed you by but round these parts at this time of year there is a quaint celebration called Christmas - the origins are lost in the mists of time, but it is believed to originate from a tribe of credit based shoppers.

Anyway this drink is based on a traditional yuletide drink known as Eggnog, but lifted and lightened a little.

The Eggnog is actually only part finished prior to the addition of brandy and cream, specifically after step 5 of method 1 in these instructions.

  • 2 shots cognac
  • 1 shot part finished eggnog
  • 3/4 shot lemon juice
  • 1/2 egg white

Shake super hard over ice and double strain into a coupe. Dust elegantly with cinnamon.

    Made this only had lite Eggnog on hand. Too watery as a result; somewhat redeemed with pure maple syrup.

    Lite eggnog? Is that a thing? This was thick unctuous eggnog. Essentially thick spiced custard.

    I know. It wasn't mine. 😁
