Eggnog Orange Julius Recipe2018-11-16
Christmas season means eggnog season. Traditionally, eggnog is an alcoholic beverage made with milk, cream, sugar, and of course whipped egg whites and egg yolk. It is popular in America, Canada, and England (although many variations of this frothy beverage can be found around the world). Today, even more versions of this drink exist such as Puerto Rico’s coquito, Mexico’s rompope, and Russia’s kogel mogel.
The origins of eggnog can be traced back to 13th century Europe where British monks brewed a warm ale punch with figs and eggs called posset. Over the years, it merged with similar beverages served in social gatherings. Eventually, American colonists made their own twist on the beverage that contained rum. In modern times, non-alcoholic versions are commercially available, and many families have heirloom recipes for this sweet, creamy seasonal treat.
Our blended version contains the zesty taste of Hale Groves oranges, is easy to make, and is a delicious spin on eggnog that both kids and adults can enjoy. You’ll need:
