2022 Let’s Get Blitzen: Cocktail Advent Calendar – Day 19 – Cranberry Sauce Sour. The holidays should be spent enjoying time with family and friends, not with your kitchenware. This make-ahead cranberry sauce is equally delicious with your turkey and in your cocktails made with Canadian eggs.
This post is sponsored by the Egg Farmers of Canada.
This holiday season, Egg Farmers of Canada is inspiring Canadians to make their celebratory meals even more memorable through a collection of make-ahead festive side dishes—perfect for sharing with friends and family at holiday potlucks or as a complement to your own festive table spread.
Whether planning for big or small gatherings, these egg-ceptional, easy to pull together sides are sure to please. Egg Farmers of Canada works with four of the country’s top chefs on some incredible sides featuring eggs (that would all pair perfectly with this delicious Cranberry Sauce Sour). They are: Chef Matt Basile’s Mushrooms on Toast, Chef Lynn Crawford’s Bacon and Egg Wedge Salad, Chef Craig Flin’s Croque Madame Strata, Chef Josh Gale’s Savoury Crêpes with Sunny Side Up Eggs.
This cocktail uses make-ahead cranberry sauce, egg white, Pisco or a non-alcoholic base spirit of your choosing, lemon, and a splash of sage champagne syrup. Candied cranberries make for a great garnish but fresh cranberries will work just fine too!
We Canadians are fortunate to have year-round access to fresh, local, high-quality eggs to use in all our favourite cookie and cocktail recipes, thanks to the hard work of Canada’s over 1,200 egg farmers in all ten provinces and the Northwest Territories.
Thanks to the system of supply management, Canadians can trust that their Canada Grade A eggs are among the best in the world for quality and freshness, produced following world-class standards for food safety and animal care.
Eggs are a versatile ingredient that can be used in a variety of holiday recipes, including make-ahead favourites and egg white cocktails. There are a few egg white cocktails in this year’s Let’s Get Blitzen: Cocktail Advent Calendar but if you’re looking for tips on how to ensure all those yolks don’t go to waste, the team at Egg Farmers of Canada have put together this helpful resource for what to do with those leftover yolks.
