Its close to Christmas, so why not set aside some time simply for enjoyment and relaxation, both for yourself and for others? Our new SOFFA 24 is dedicated to celebrating the anniversary which evokes the first republic spirit. And so in preparation we moved back in time. 

The history of eggnog stretches back to the middle ages when it was drunk mostly by rich aristocrats. Eggs and spirits were at that time expensive and so poorer classes couldn’t afford them. Today everything is different and liquor is a common thing in most households.

The preparation is very simple and quick. Simply decide before how strong you want your drinks to be this Christmas, after all it seems our grandparents’ did not hold back on the sprits!

Put the sifted icing sugar, egg yolks, vanilla powder or crushed and sifted vanilla beans into the mixer and mix for 15 minutes. Then add the heated milk or cream and next stir in the pure spirit. Once the mixture is well blended, pour it into a clean bottle, pop a cork in and seal it. And don't to forget enjoy it with your loved ones! 

Happy holidays! May all your wishes come true in 2018,
your SOFFA team
