Christmas Eve: Eggnog

Eggnog is one of the great holiday drinks that you only get to enjoy once a year.    To make the eggnog yourself is best I guess , but you have to be able to spend 3 or 4 hours in the process.   I'll go to the grocery store and pick-up a quart and make the upgrades to it myself.    In the past couple of years I have been using a great spiced from made in Sarasota, Florida call Siesta Key Spiced Rum for my eggnog.  This rum has Christmas written all over it, the spices remind me of gingerbread cookies and pumpkin pie.  

Bahama Bob's Eggnog 

  • Collins glass filled 3/4 full of quality eggnog
  • 1 1/2 oz. Siesta Key Spiced Rum
  • Fresh Ground Nutmeg
  • Whipped Cream
  • Cherry on top
Add the rum to the eggnog in a shaker filled with ice and shake until chilled.  Strain into a Collins glass and grind the nutmeg on top to taste, top with whipped cream, and place a cherry in the whipped cream.  You can also garnish with a cinnamon stick.

     Enjoy you eggnog and have a very Happy Holiday.   ;o)
