You just never know what you will find when you start digging. Eggnog in general, or "Egg Nogg" as it was often spelled, is a truly ancient drink appearing in many of the very earliest texts.
|Leo Engle everyone. Really...really?|
Still, it's a recipe worth repeating. Here I'll do it again.
Egg Nogg (Adopted from Jerry Thomas, 1862)
1 tablespoon powdered sugar
1 tablespoon water
1 fresh laid egg
2 ounces Cognac brandy
1 ounce White Rum
2 1/2 ounces milk
Combine the sugar and water, stir, then add the milk and egg and stir again. Add the ice and then the spirits. Shake hard for 60-90 seconds at a minimum. Strain into "Collins" glass and grate fresh nutmeg over the top.
