Distilling has been our family profession for at least 4 generations. It probably comes as no surprise that our favorite thing about the holidays are the cocktails. For the Prichard’s, nothing says the holidays have arrived like enjoying an eggnog by the fireplace or a hot buttered rum while looking out at a fresh snow fall.
We thought it would be a good idea to share a few on here. Hopefully someone can get some use out of them. As always, we encourage you to enjoy these responsibly and we would like to remind you that the rum can be left out of these drinks.
RUBY PRICHARD’S OL’ FASHION EGGNOG
12 fresh large eggs
1-1/2 cups sugar
1 bottle of Prichards’ Fine Rum
2 quarts of whole milk
1/2 pint of whipping cream
1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream
Beat eggs in a large mixing bowl until they are light. Blend in 1 ½ cups of sugar. While beating, add one half of the rum a little at a time, then cover and place in the refrigerator for 12 to 24 hours. A few hours before serving, add the 2 quarts of milk and the remainder of the rum alternately, a little at a time. Whip the ½ pint of whipping cream and fold it into the eggnog and ladle in the softened ice cream. When serving, sprinkle a little nutmeg on top and perhaps a little whipped cream. Mom always said, “Even people who are not fond of eggnog will love this recipe.”
1 bottle Prichards’ Fine Rum
4 oz. sugar syrup
4 oz. maraschino cherry juice
1 pint lemon juice
4 bottles of champagne
Blend all ingredients but champagne and let sit. Add champagne at time of serving.
PRICHARDS’ HOT BUTTERED RUM
1-1/2 oz. Prichards’ Fine Rum
1 tsp sugar syrup
1 pat of butter
1/2 tsp mixed spices (cloves, cinnamon & nutmeg)
Stir in rum, sugar and spices into mug. Fill with hot water, float butter on top and stir gently until butter is dissolved. Serve hot.
