There is nothing like a good bowl of cereal! But cereal doesn’t have to be reserved for breakfast. Even better, it could be happy hour!
I, Ashley wanted to take cereal and give it a boozy twist to enjoy after dinner or for brunch (my favorite meal).
The Boozy Cereal Milk Egg Cream is the perfect way to have your cereal and drink it too!
What is Egg Cream?
If you’ve never had the pleasure of sipping the beauty that is an egg cream, it is a classic soda fountain drink.
Despite the term, it has no egg in it. How silly, right?
Instead, it consists of cream or milk, flavored syrup, and soda water for fizz. It ends up tasting like a fizzy milkshake. No blender needed!
When it comes to egg creams, one of the best parts is the fizzy foam that forms. The best way to get this is with a high carbonated soda water.
As we all don’t have access to our own soda jerks and tap, there are a few options to achieve the foamiest egg cream.
There are soda siphons you can get that you can adjust how much carbonation is added. There are also high carbonated sodas on the market like Q Drinks that will do just fine.
If you can’t get either, no worries! Your cocktail just won’t be as fizzy.
Customizing Your Egg Cream Flavors
You can customize egg creams with different flavored syrups (chocolate, strawberry) or in this case, with cereal flavored milk!
One of the best parts of cereal is getting to the bottom and having the tasty milk to drink.
I wanted that cereal flavor in a cocktail. So I took some cream and quickly infused with Lucky Charms. Marshmallows for the win!
This way, I got a sweet cream that recalls breakfasts of my childhood. But then, added some booze to quickly bring me back to adulthood.
The best of both worlds!
