T’was the Cocktail Series Before Christmas: Night 7 of 12 – Egan’s Holiday Eggnog

Tonight is lucky number seven on our holiday potables parade, and this time, it’s all about that staple beverage of the Christmas season: the holiday eggnog. This pretty classic take brings all the nutmeg and cinnamon one expects, along with the spicy character of triple-distilled Egan’s Vintage Grain Irish Whiskey. For those of you who feel like it just isn’t the holiday season until you’ve lost track of how many ‘nogs you’ve thrown back, we think you’ll find this one to be just what the doctor ordered.

Egan’s Holiday Eggnog
By Egan’s Irish Whiskey

  • 1 ½ oz. Egan’s Vintage Grain
  • 1 large grade AA egg, separated
  • 2 tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 2 oz. heavy cream
  • 2 oz. whole milk
  • ¼ tsp. freshly grated nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp. cinnamon
  • Freshly grated nutmeg for garnish

Preparation: Beat the egg white and sugar in a bowl on medium speed until the sugar completely dissolves and the mixture thickens. Reduce speed and add the egg yolk, then the cinnamon and nutmeg. Add the milk, cream and whiskey. Chill overnight or to serve immediately, shake over ice and strain into a punch cup or coupe glass. Top with freshly grated nutmeg to garnish.
