Hazardous ingredients

Egg (white & yolk) is potentially hazardous if used incorrectly.

Review:

This vintage cocktail is literally a thickened alcoholic milkshake flavoured with cognac and rum. Yum!

Variant:

Pre-heat milk, rum, cognac and sugar to turn this into a Hot Egg Nog.

History:

Egg Nog is a vintage Christmas libation and George Washington, America's first President famously made his own. It is traditionally made by whisking the egg yolks with sugar; separately stirring the milk, cream, rum and bourbon; and finally combining these two mixtures along with beaten egg white. This is obviously best made in batches and is a faff. Our quick and easy single-serve version delivers on flavour and if you seek a thicker consistency then opt for cream in place of milk.
