All in all the first written references to a milkshake date back to 1885. It was then that one of the British newspapers wrote about the milk liquid as a tasty and healthy drink that included milk, eggs and whiskey. Whiskey was taken blended, milk — cow, both — chilled. The composition of the milk shake resembled a recipe for an egg nogg, represented by mix popular in the 1880s.
According to one version, this milky-egg cocktail with the addition of a small amount of alcohol (whiskey or brandy) was invented by the British. Quite quickly, the egg-nogg was appreciated by Europeans and Americans.
However, Europeans decided that with hot milk the cocktail would taste better, and Americans, in their turn, replaced whiskey and brandy with rum. Although, of course, nothing prevented to add to the drink rum, whiskey and brandy at the same time.
The cocktail was cooked in large vessels and served at social parties, on holidays, at a family table for Christmas. I must say that at that time the ingredients for the egg-nogg were not cheap, because the cocktail could not be called popular.
