The ever popular Christmas beverage of dairy, sugar, whipped eggs, spices and various liquors (brandy, rum, whiskey, bourbon, vodka, sherry) is now available at both our NW 22nd and SW Corbett Ave bars. Each bartender has taken a slightly different approach to this quaffable confection–and each will be making different versions all through the holidays!
At NW 22nd, Kelly is starting with a classic house-made eggnog: Knob Creek Bourbon, Rittenhouse Rye, amber B maple syrup, eggs, cream, nutmeg, cinnamon, clove & vanilla.
Once these batch is gone, there will be new recipes to follow that aren’t so traditional. We’ll be making nog right up until the New Year so there’ll be many different styles to try.
This isn’t the sort of eggnog you’ll find in the grocery store (The FDA permits that eggnog can be made from as little as 1% egg yolk) and the difference is huge! It’s rich and creamy without being gummy or overly sweet.
But we probably won’t be doing a version of George Washington’s eggnog: Kitchen records from Mount Vernon indicate that Washington served an eggnog-like drink to visitors, and he included three different types of booze: rye whiskey, rum, and sherry. Wow!
