Cocktails sure to sleigh, from Kindred

Davidson, NC – The folks at Kindred have sent two fun cocktail recipes, “sure to sleigh”, over for Carolina Epicurean readers.  Enjoy!

Fun fact, Eggnog has been around since the 1700’s, bringing delicious joy to consumers for close to three hundred years. That said; why not (literally) shake it up this Christmas by adding a healthier spin with this delicious recipe from Kindred, located in Davidson, North Carolina! This lighter take includes spiced almond milk, simple syrup, egg whites and bourbon. Topped with fluffy egg whites, ground nutmeg and a cinnamon stick, this sweet treat is as guilt-free as it is gorgeous.
