09 Dec Mr. Chop’s Egg Nogg
by Jonathan Chovancek, co-founder Bittered Sling
If you’re in a chilly place, no better feeling than sitting by a warm fire, with cozy socks and all the flannel pyjamas you can find. Egg Nogg is great for this occasion. You can always sub any other whiskey, rum or brandy in for the Irish variant. We like to build the egg nogg with two method options: 1) shake like a sour (hard) or 2) shake like a Ramos (method below).
1.50oz | 45ml Irish Whiskey
2.00oz | 60ml heavy cream
1.00oz | 30ml Demerara Sugar Syrup 1:1
1 whole egg
2 dashes Bittered Sling Malagasy Chocolate bitters
Grated nutmeg, for garnish
How to prepare:
Add the whiskey, heavy cream, sweetener, egg and bitters to a shaker. For standard shake, add ice and shake for 10 seconds hard. For the Ramos method, shake with 3 ice cubes until they disappear inside (30 seconds – you can hear it); from there, dry shake 30 seconds, and throw with ice for 30 seconds. Whatever method you choose, pour neat into your favourite (and creepiest) festive mug you only use once a year – that’s the one! Garnish with grated nutmeg and some cookies on the side.
