Recipe Royal: Eggnogout
Eggnog is anything but sexy. We know that. But when mixed with a shot of espresso and various shots of rum, the eggnog transforms into Eggnogout. For the Christmas drink of your choice among friends. Or an evening of family feasting.
Christmas. The festival of love. A time for reflection and bliss. And of course overindulgence. The pre-Christmas season is often so stressful that it ends in tears. Especially if you spend Christmas with family members and friends who are just as stressed as you.

But sometimes it does you good. To simply vent your frustrations. Letting off some steam. So that you can finally chill out – together with family, friends or pets. This is the best time to say cheers and forget the past year. With a festive drink that is second to none. Not only is our eggnog infused with espresso, it is also laced with rum that will knock your Christmas socks off. Lots of rum. Special moments call for special measures.
