    Re: Eggnog

    My local store still has no Evan Williams eggnog. I'm about ready to call in an emergency air drop. Promised Land brand eggnog does not liquor up well, and I'm not good at making my own.

    I saw Southern Comfort eggnog on the shelf recently. However, I think it's non alcoholic

    I've been drinking from a bottle of EW EggNog I found in Baltimore a couple of weeks ago. WaWa also has started carrying their EggNog for 2011 so I've also been mixing that with just about everything.

    Ok, I am interested in trying Calder's will look around for it. What is the ratio of Bourbon to Nog you use?

    Best regards, tony

    In a rocks glass I like two shots of bourbon.
    But you should start with one and can always add more.
    Calder's is so thick the bourbon will sit on top of it, then you need to whip it with a fork.

    Okay, I am morally obligated to quote the Talking Heads (or was it Devo - the mind is going...) here:

    "Whip it. Whip it good."

    Re: Eggnog

    I saw some EW eggnog at the store yesterday. I plan to pick some up this year (as well as making my own).

    WT 101, OWA, and VOB BiB are go-tos for cooking in my house so I figure those would be perfect to start with for the eggnog. Others have mentioned WT and OWA on here, but has anyone tried VOB in nog?

    I'm also curious about the BT cream liqueur. Has anybody tried this? If so, what do you use it in - or do you just drink it straight?

    That's Devo btw.

    Re: Eggnog

    I also meant to say that Trader's Point creamery located in Indiana makes some great eggnog:

    http://www.tpforganics.com/

    I got some through a home grocery deliver (Green B.E.A.N. delivery - no affiliation) last year. My wife told me she didn't like eggnog, but couldn't stop drinking the stuff.

    I think a lot of local dairys make the stuff; I'm hoping Snowville Creamery (who make my absolute favorite milk) makes some in the near future.

    Re: Eggnog

    I have made the Washington Egg Nog recipe that AVB posted for the last 2 years and it is excellent.

    I had no idea regarding the aging that is good to know. I always found myself trying to drinnk it all in 2-3 days. Granted they were good days but, making a big batch and using for Thanksgiving and Christmas is much more appealing.

    Good stuff. Thanks for the info.
