I can’t even remember when this became a tradition with my in-laws but now we can’t go through the holiday season without spiking the eggnog! We love to get cozy around the fire, by the light of the Christmas tree and laugh and tell stories. Chances are we’ll probably have pizza rolls on a silver platter too, lol.
What are some of your quirky holiday traditions?
The better the quality eggnog, the better your cocktail will be. If you can find a local dairy that makes eggnog that is definitely the right choice. In northeast Ohio that’s Hartzler Dairy for sure!
Who Spiked the Egg Nog?
Makes 1 cocktail
2 oz. egg nog
1 oz. Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum
2 dashes orange bitters
Fresh ground nutmeg
Add egg nog, rum and bitters to a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake for about 30 seconds or until cold and frothy.
Pour over a large cube of ice in a rocks glass.
Top with whipped cream and nutmeg. Cheers!

If you know my father-in-law you know his love of Straight No Chaser and I think you should play this while imbibing responsibly of course. 🙂
