Eggnog was never really a tradition in my household. To be honest, alcohol was never a thing in my parents home…EVER. So I had this preconceived notion that eggnog was gross, and since I was never the biggest fan of dairy products, I wrote it off that I’d never like eggnog.Since starting Liquid Culture, we all know that this is a place to try new things, and explore new flavours! So what did I do? I stopped being a baby and experimented. It took me some time to adjust, but it hit me like a ton of bricks…and that’s to create a Christmas Eggnog Pisco Sour!
Now those new to Pisco, it is basically a grape distilled alcohol that have debatable origins that will cause a war between Peru and Chile some day. But since I visited Peru, I kind of have my heart set that they know what they are doing. It’s hard to describe, but I find that it’s a cross between a vodka and rum (I know you Pisco fans are giving me a dirty look right now). I even found it similar to Dillons White Rye that they carry. Their truly is nothing like it, and what better way of showcasing a unique spirit with a unique product. This is definitely for those comfortable using egg whites in their cocktails, similar to what you find in a Whiskey Sour. In the end, what we got here is magic. You’re welcome :)
