The following beverages begin with the letter “e”: eggnog, egg cream, eau de vie, espresso, and Eskimo punch. Examples of alcoholic mixed cocktails beginning with “e” are the East Indies Sling and the Embassy Royal.
Egg cream includes neither eggs nor cream, despite its name. It is a Brooklyn favourite and a typical New York drink. It consists of chocolate syrup, chilled milk or heavy cream, with seltzer water or club soda on top.
Eaux de vie are fruit brandies, whereas an Eskimo punch consists of strawberries and lemonade concentrate. Espresso is made with finely ground coffee beans, resulting in a richer, more flavorful beverage.
