We know what some of you might be thinking. "Why add eggs to cocktails; that's gross?" Not eggzactly! We'll tell you why – if they are used right, they make cocktails with a texture and body you can't get with any other ingredient or method. Egg whites give a cocktail a silky yet light frothiness, and drinks with whole eggs in them have a rich consistency without being too creamy. 

Maybe you could try the whites for starters, since they have a much less prominent taste compared to the yellows. So today, on World Egg Day, celebrate by giving these a shot (eggnog excluded). We give you 8 perfect ways to not only get your protein but also tipsy in the process.

Before you proceed with the below recipes, here are a few things to keep in mind. Worried about the bacteria since the eggs won't be cooked? You can always check by giving each egg a whiff or simply buy pasteurized eggs to be safe. Besides, the alcohol will act as a germicide. Make sure you give each cocktail a vigorous shake, with ice since it's important to have all of them chilled.
