Round two! Second verse, same as the first. But hot.
Merry Christmas! (I’m not around to look at the news today.)
82. Hot Egg Nogg
(Use large bar glass.)
- This drink is very popular in California, and is made in precisely the same manner as the cold egg nogg above [er, below, here], except that you must use boiling water instead of ice.
- 1 table-spoonful of fine sugar, dissolved with
- 1 table-spoonful cold water, 1 egg.
- 2 oz. of Cognac brandy.
- 1 oz. of Santa Cruz rum.
- ⅓ tumblerful of milk.
- Fill the tumbler ¼ full with shaved ice, shake the ingredients until they are thoroughly mixed together [emphasis his], and grate a little nutmeg on top. Every well ordered bar has a tin egg-nogg “shaker,” which is a great aid in mixing this beverage.
BN: This ratio worked much better. A lot more flavor, but make sure to heat the milk before mixing, because it ended up being more of a Lukewarm Egg Nogg. It’s thicker, though, and scratches all the right egg nog itches. Not sure why the hot version would be more popular in California — you’d think the colder one would be, due to the weather, but maybe he’s talking about, I don’t know, the mountains or something.
PiC: It tastes like booze! But not too much. Merry Christmas everyone!
