Guest Blogger: The Barfly on Eggnog

Over the Christmas and New Year period we welcome six guest posts from cocktail columnist, London bar reviewer & blogger The Barfly

His festive series began with Mulled Wine, and now he's on to the Eggnog…


Excessive. Slightly gloopy. Messy. Oh behave yourselves.

You will need:

1 ½ shots Lamb’s Navy Rum

1 shot Havana Club rum

½ shot sugar syrup

1 Egg

½ double cream

3 shots of milk

Glass: Collins (that, Mein Host, is a the tall one)

Method: Shake all ingredients with ice and then strain into an ice-filled glass

Garnish: Ground or grated nutmeg. Do you remember the little grater that you won in a Christmas cracker last year? That’s what it’s for: grating nutmeg on to your Eggnog. I bet you wish you’d kept it now.

Next Time… The Champagne Cocktail
