Twice-Spiced Almond Nog

Hallelujah! Holy sh*t! This is some good nog.

If you didn’t recognize the glass in the photo above, it’s the moose mug made famous in the classic holiday film National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. To say I love the movie is a severe understatement, and I can’t even say the word “eggnog” without thinking of the film immediately. So when I developed the recipe for this This Spiced Almond Egg Nog used my Twice-Spiced Rum, infused with vanilla, cinnamon and star anise to bring a great flavor profile to a lighter version of classic eggnog, I knew it had to be enjoyed in the special glass.

A bit on my obsession with Christmas Vacation.

The in-house Gordon Ramsay/my personal “Sparky” and I are big fans of National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. So much so that a few years back, we dressed as Clark and Ellen Griswold for a Halloween party. And much to our surprise/delight, we found someone dressed as “Attic Reminiscing Clark Griswold”, complete with robe and head wrap, AND a Cousin Eddie that year. Our hearts and the sh*tter were full that year, and we both still have our costumes. I smell a great holiday card brewing in our future.
