We have crafted a dedicated Thanksgiving drink! it is a truly American delight! pecan milk is the answer today!
Pecan milk egg-nog;
The idea of the cocktail and our inspiration
It was on the wish list for few days and we have managed to take a couple of shots today of this creamy but lactose free drink (with an home-made pecan milk). This is definitely a very good American alternative to the classic egg-nog with an eye to people who don’t usually drink milk!
Pecan milk egg-nog is the cocktail created by us that celebrates Thanksgiving day, the harvest blessing and it’s among the most important festivities in countries such as the Americas, Canada and Caribbean Islands ;
Pecan milk egg-nog, cocktail recipe:
- 40 ml homemade pecan milk
- 40 ml Rye wiskey
- 20 ml black coffee
- 1 egg yolk
- garnish with a ginger bread biscuit ;
Pecan milk execution:
We have soaked in 1 litre of mineral water, the quantity of 500 g Pecan nuts, 1 bar spoon of salt and two bar spoons of sugar… and we have let the mix settle in the fridge for 24 hrs.
One day later, it just needs to be blended at high speed and strained through a cheese-cloth. (there is an entire guide to home-made milks here) click to link to the full article about!
The power of Pecan nuts:
Americans are most familiar with pecans as they take the stage on the holiday table in the form of pecan pie. However, these delicious nuts deserve to be enjoyed throughout the all year. Outside of sweet dessert form, which tends to be laden with sugar and fat, pecans are a healthy nut that makes an easy snack or can add heft to a meal.
