Share this Post

Eggnog. The signature beverage of the holiday season. Just hearing the word elicits fond memories and prompts cravings of cheery cocktails and flavorful desserts.

Available only seasonally, we understand why you’re running to the dairy case to get your fill. Just be sure it’s Shamrock Farms Eggnog you’re stocking up on. A small-batch recipe perfected over three generations and made from pure, fresh milk and cream with a custom blend of spices, there’s really nothing better.

This year you can not only find their traditional eggnog at Shamrock Foodservice Warehouse, but also the new Shamrock Farms Irish Whiskey Eggnog. Both a tasty treat simply poured in a glass, Shamrock Farms went a step further by creating creamy cocktail and delectable dessert recipes to wow your guests this holiday season.

Our favorite cocktail is the Shamrock Farms French Toast Eggnog Martini, which pairs perfectly with our favorite dessert - Shamrock Farms Soaked Irish Whiskey Eggnog Cake (recipe below).
