Safest Choice Eggs helped kick of this year’s Eat Write Retreat conference in high style by sponsoring our Signature Cocktails event. Not only are these unique shell-pasteurized eggs perfect in cookie dough, mousses and homemade mayonnaise, but they make delicious drinks, too! Plus, they are free from the risk of salmonella, unlike non-pasteurized eggs. Which makes using them in cocktails all the more appealing.
We just had to try our hand at “silver, gold and royal” cocktails as part of the Signature Cocktails with Safest Choice Eggs event. Paired with retro spirits Sage and Root, from local artisan distiller Art in the Age and fresh fruit juice, these drinks are tasty, balanced and fun! In fact, the only thing they are missing is a name!
That’s where you come in. Take a look at the recipes below, peruse the photos from our event, and give it your best shot! Come up with an original moniker for one or both of the cocktails from our party and you could walk away with an Eat Write Retreat swag bag (valued at approximately $200). Runner up receives a 6-month supply of Safest Choice Eggs.
