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 S Corbett Ave bars.
This year our eggnog features roasted hazelnut-washed bourbon, Frangelico, caramel, sugar, cream, milk, orange zest and spices. We’ll be making nog right up until the New Year!
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!
