Whether you just want a little holiday buzz or need liquid courage to tolerate your relatives, who doesn’t love a good Egg Nog on Christmas? I’ve never actually had a traditional Egg Nog, liquor aside, because the thought of downing cold, un-cooked eggs was never appealing. However, there are a good bunch of recipes that do not include egg at all, yet apparently bear the same taste and consistency of the original. I’m not going to get into that. I’m here to talk about the pre-made bottled stuff, sold as Pennsylvania Dutch Egg Nog. You can find it in stores anywhere from $8.99 to about $10.99. Served ice-cold, this cocktail will get you into the Christmas spirit. It contains no eggs at all…just some rum, brandy, and whiskey blended with fresh dairy cream.
