It’s the birthday of the Father of Our Country (George Washington, to those of you who didn’t attend grade school in the U.S.).
Washington was quite a fan of egg nog and devised his own recipe that included rye whiskey, rum and sherry.
If you’ve been missing nog since the holidays ended, try this egg nog recipe (plus the history of egg nog) and toast to George. If egg nog isn’t your thing, there are two other choices.
First, there’s kirsch (kirschwasser/kirsch water), which is a cherry eau de vie. In keeping with the Washington’s Birthday cherry theme, try it or any cherry schnapps straight or in a cocktail.
The other appropriate libation: a Margarita. Why? February 22 is also National Margarita Day! See the history of the Margarita plus Margarita recipes.
For the kids: alcohol-free egg nog or delicious tart cherry juice!
