World Egg Day

Chick and egg

The egg has often been referred to as the perfect food; full of vitamins & nutrients, a great source of high quality protein and amino acids, they promote healthy brain and eye function and even aid in weight loss. It’s hard to believe that the greatness of eggs can be improved, but leave it to bartenders to find a way! The egg is a delicious cocktail ingredient, and has become an essential in any cocktail bar.

Bartenders over a century ago were the first to start utilizing the egg in cocktail making. Shaking up a flip or a fizz with a whole egg or just the white created a rich, creamy, textured drink that couldn’t be replicated.  Many of these truly classic cocktails have become icons in the cocktail renaissance that we have seen in the last few decades.

What better way to celebrate World Egg Day than with a cocktail or two? Here are a couple of my favorite drinks using nature’s perfect food! Cheers!
