The holidays are coming, and that means it’s eggnog season! Fuck you pumpkin spice, eggnog is where it’s at. It’s got the spice of pumpkin spice in it, without all that healthy pumpkin. Vegetables are for losers–cholesterol-laden eggs are sooooooo much more awesome.
Eggnog is tasty on it’s own and it also makes an awesome pie. (Because fuck you pumpkin.) But it really shines when you put booze in it. I mean, what ISN’T better with booze in it?
A lot of people I know like whiskey in their eggnog. But me? I prefer rum. Spiced rum, to be specific. And I call it Rumnog. The best part of this recipe is you can serve it cold, or, if you are constantly shivering like I was before they put me into instant menopause, you can heat up the eggnog first and then mix it with the rum. And as usual, you can make pitchers of this stuff if you’re serving at a party.
4 oz. eggnog (I am partial to Darigold’s eggnog, but use whatever you like)
1.5 oz rum
Stir and serve in a mug. That’s it, that’s the drink. We’re you expecting something more complex? We’re talking about me here, people, I don’t do complex. I do FUCKING DELICIOUS.
One thought on “Cocktails with the Cult: Rumnog”
I always do my egg nog with whiskey but I’m beginning to rethink that. On Halloween night we had spiced rum and apple cider and it was divine.
You might be on to something here….
