Twelve Drinks of Christmas Begins: Day One, EGGNOG!!

It’s Christmas time and that typically means drinks of all sorts. One of the coolest groupings of drinks that I have seen of late was a spin on different versions of eggnog courtesy of the Los Angeles Times Food Section

According to Noelle Cutler, the writer of the article, there are some really interesting tweaks to the different versions of eggnog out there — providing you are willing to make it from scratch.
EGGNOG VARIATIONS: Here are some truly memorable takes on the venerable holiday drink: on the left, rum-coconut in front, citrus-tequila at rear and chestnut honey-Scotch in middle; on right side, clockwise from rear right: brown sugar-rye whiskey butterscotch, amaretto-apricot, nut brittle and gin-maraschino.
However I have a few others that might make it a bit easier for you
Check your local supermarket for Vanilla Spiced premade Eggnog or Pumpkin Spice Eggnog.
Try adding Bacardi Coco-Rum to the Vanilla Spiced Eggnog for a real kick or check out
either Jack Daniels or Makers Mark Whiskey to the Pumpkin one.

Want to take it REALLY decadent with eggnog? Then get a bottle of Hennesy XO Cognac.
. X.O, is the first extra Old cognac. Hennessy is a leader in cognac, selling 50 million bottles a year around the world. The excellence of the product inspires an astonishing variety of ways to enjoy it, in a traditional snifter, on ice, in long drinks or in cocktails- so eggnog makes for an interesting twist. Mixing it into the Pumpkin Spiced Eggnog will give the eggnog a smooth kick that no one will have figured out.
. Made from grapes, cognac goes perfectly with fruit, spices and other liquors, providing an ideal base for innovative and delicious cocktail creationsis powerful, masculine and generous – a genuine pleasure. It releases woody, spicy aromas. Now an established symbol of luxury, its rich character is enhanced by a distinctive decanter designed in 1947. $109.99
So head to the store for some great eggnog and get the Hennesey and some other mixes and create something unique
Happy Holidays
