Monday Booze Recommendation – the Monday, Seriously Dude? edition
Normally I reserve these posts for the weekend as I only drink on Fridays and Saturdays. (Stop laughing!) (Okay, you got me. I only drink on days with the letter ‘d’ in them, though.) But this recipe for an eggnog spike, donated by Alkibiades, needs time to sit so I’m offering it to you now. It won’t technically be ready by this weekend, but I still need to settle on an eggnog recipe anyway.
The Spike of Alkibiades:
2 cups bourbon
1 cup brandy
1 cup dark rum
1 whole nutmeg crushed into 4-5 pieces 1 whole cinnamon stick
7 whole cloves
1 whole vanilla bean
“Put all the booze together. Cut the vanilla bean open, scrape out the insides, put the vanilla paste and the husk into the bottle, add all the other ingredients and store in a cool dark place for at least a week. Three months works good too.”
Part 2 coming soon, though I welcome suggestions for eggnog recipes. Crowdsourcing cocktails – it’s the wave of the future.
