At The Bluebird Cocktail Room in Baltimore, the house eggnog from their newly launched winter menu literally comes with an egg on top—a candy egg, that is.

The egg shell is made of melted white chocolate that is then molded into the shape of a cracked open egg. It is then filled with “yolk,” a mixture of whipped cream and Suze Herbal Liqueur, giving the yolk its own boozy flavor and a yellow coloring. A delicious version of a classic cocktail for your holiday celebrations.
