We were sent this recipe by Dale DeGroff in December 2012 who said: “A personal favourite, adapted from a recipe from Jerry Thomas' 1862 How to Mix Drinks: a totally different take on eggnog – made as a single-serve drink it includes a raw egg, so you need to shake the hell out of it.” This cocktail is named after General William Henry Harrison, the American president to hold office for the shortest period. He was elected 4th March 1841 and died a month to the day later of pneumonia. Harrison was known for his drinking and cider was one of his preferred tipples. It is said that this eggnog was his favourite drink.
Created in 2006 by yours truly (Simon Difford) at The Cabinet Room, London, England. Named partly for the 'St-G' on the screw cap of St-Germain elderflower liqueur and partly after 'The Stig', the mysterious racing driver on the BBC's Top Gear show.
