It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas 🎅🏼🎄✨ which means... festive cocktails are a must-have for a jolly good Christmas time~ We have the perfect BamNut twist on a Christmas classic: eggnog!
What is Eggnog?
Eggnog (also known as milk punch or egg milk punch) is a cold, dairy-based beverage, traditionally made with milk, cream, sugar, egg yolks, and whipped egg whites. To this mixture, alcoholic spirits such as brandy, rum, whisky or bourbon are added as a key ingredient.
History of Eggnog
Eggnog is thought to have originated in medieval Europe in the 14th century, from a hot milk-based drink comprised of spices and wine known as 'posset'. Posset was mostly consumed as a cocktail, but it was also was used as a soothing remedy for colds and flu. However, the British aristocracy decided to create a premium version of posset that used ingredients that only the wealthy could afford: egg, milk, and sherry. And thus, eggnog was created!
Why is Eggnog enjoyed during Christmas?
Eggnog is particularly popular during Christmas season, because of its warm temperature and the addition of wintery flavours like cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla bean.
How to use BamNut milk to make an Eggnog cocktail
In this recipe, we add our BamNut Milk (Everyday) in addition to using commercially-prepared eggnog. Our BamNut milk is the perfect ingredient that gives a drink a splash of creaminess with a hint of nuttiness. BamNut milk is an extremely versatile dairy-free milk that can be shaken, stirred and mixed well with different types of spirits. It can be enjoyed on its own or with a wide variety of cocktails, both hot and cold.
