Eggs! They’re Not Just for Breakfast
Even those old enough to have watched Rocky man up by slurping down half a dozen raw eggs get weak in the knees at the thought of hen fruit in their cocktails. It’s too bad: Classic egg-based drinks like nogs and flips became holiday staples because of their unparalleled creamy, custardy deliciousness.
As menus are required to alert you, consuming raw eggs can be risky. But once you’ve tried a classic flip or nog, you’ll know it’s worth it. Use only use the freshest eggs you can find from local farmers you trust. “Dry shake” your ingredients first by shaking them without ice until frothy; adding the wire spring you’ve removed from your cocktail strainer will help increase the agitation and produce a fine foam.
