Four London bars that serve eggnog

Written by

Eggnog may seem initially better suited to your local Starbucks than your classic London bar but there are actually plenty of alcoholic ‘nogs to get your festive cheer piqued. Here are four of them.

Hix Eggnog at Hix, Soho

King of all things warm and British, Hix is offering the imaginatively named Hix Eggnog this Christmas. It's made from Clarence Court eggs, Somerset cider brandy, dark rum, sherry and a dusting of cinnamon and nutmeg with milk, sugar and cream. Hix’s head bartender Dustin MacMillan acquired the original recipe from Mark Hix himself and says 'this is the good stuff which will instantly make you a believer in the power of the 'nog!'. £10.50, Mark’s Bar at Hix, 66-70 Brewer Street, W1F 9UP 

Cold Cider Egg Nog at The Nightjar, Old Street

Old Street’s Nightjar, known for its experimental, show-stopping cocktails, has added the Cold Cider Egg Nog to the menu especially for Christmas. Based on a hot cider eggnog recipe that goes back to 1904, Nightjar's version mixes Rémy Martin VSOP with ginger liqueur, egg yolk, maple syrup, grenadine syrup, apple and pear spread and grapefruit curd foam. Not quite fancy enough? The glass's rim is then painted with balsamic glaze, and the drink is garnished with mulled cider spice and a mini pancake cookie. £12, The Nightjar, 129 City Road, EC1V 1JB

Chai Egg Nog at Dishoom

Dishoom creates cosy food and drink with a Bombay twist, and their eggnog is no exception. Traditional eggnog is mixed with Gosling’s Black Seal Rum, chai spices, nutmeg and cinnamon. You can have the Chai Egg Nog as part of the wider Christmas feasting menu at the restaurant, which includes a slow-cooked whole turkey leg, small plates and grills. £5.90, various branches 

House Eggnog at Hide and Demon, Wise & Partners

The Hide and Demon, Wise & Partners serve their 'nogs with Wild Turkey bourbon, spiced pimento syrup, Hidalgo Alameda sherry, cream and nutmeg. It's a suitably rich affair for the festive season, with plenty of spice and a good kick. £9, Bermondsey and City branches
