10 Frothy Cocktails Featuring Egg Whites
The first time we saw a bartender use raw egg in a cocktail, we were intrigued. Like, What? Is that even safe? But when we tasted it, we were instant fans — and you will be too. Egg-based cocktails are nothing new. In fact, several concoctions even date back to the Prohibition era. Of course, these recipes are updated with modern and festive twists, but there are some classics that just never get old (see also: eggnog, regardless if it’s spiked or not, or whipped into an eggnog-flavored dessert). Read on for 10 cocktails made with raw eggs that you are sure to sip down with delight.
Sparkling Yuzu Pisco Sour: Prepare your taste buds with this traditional cocktail with South American roots. It’s made with unflavored brandy, Pisco, and yuzu, a Japanese citrus fruit that's like a lemon. (via A Clean Bake)
Raspberry Rose Fizz: We're enchanted by the beauty and silky texture of this rosy cocktail. The rosewater and raspberry liqueur are enough to make any drinker blush. (via Honestly Yum)
Homemade Eggnog: You'll never be too old for eggnog. There’s just something about those creamy sips that takes you back to trimming the tree in matching onesies with your siblings. (via Wholefully)
Golden Milk Turmeric Cocktail: With ingredients like coconut milk, turmeric, and a dash of pepper — not to mention the aged rum, honey, and other spices — this cocktail is the very epitome of cozy. (via Craft and Cocktails)
Raspberry Clover Club Cocktail: We’re not sure what the Clover Club has to do with this pre-Prohibition cocktail, but we definitely want to sign up. Who wouldn't want to be a part of a club that serves these rose-colored cocktails topped with a gorgeous cloud of froth? (via Bell’alimento)
The Tom and Jerry: Warm your hands (and body) with this insanely comforting hot milk punch. The brandy AND rum are going to be just what you need to keep you company indoors when the weather outside is frightful. Pairs well with a Netflix binge. (via Oh So Beautiful Paper)
Whiskey Flip: Escape into this creamy classic that's known for its high booze content. If that's not enough, the sprinkle of nutmeg on top is a subtle nudge to get you into a merry mood this holiday season. (via Set the Table)
Stout Gingerbread Flip: Chocolate stout, gingerbread liqueur, rum, and chocolate bitters are used to make this beer drink. Yum! (via 10th Kitchen)
Rhubarb Ramos Gin Fizz: This New Orleans classic (gone pink!) is enough to want to take a trip down Bourbon Street IRL. That puff of meringue on top is like a halo for the glass. (via A Beautiful Mess)
Traditional Puerto Rican Coquito: Hailing from the Carribbean, coquito is made with shaved coconut or just coconut milk, and there’s something about this rum-laden drink that makes it almost too easy to sip. (via Cooking The Globe)
