Classic Eggnog Recipe

A traditional holiday drink that's more pie than cocktail? We love this classic home made eggnog recipe from Alton Brown's Good Eats.

Hot Wine

Serves 12

4 bottles dry red wine
1 cup Cognac, brandy, kirsch or Grand Marnier
1 ½ cup dark brown sugar, firmly packed
Zest from 1 organic orange
3 cinnamon sticks
2 star anise

Put everything in the pot, bring to a boil, and then immediately turn down the heat to a low simmer, stirring to dissolve the sugar.  Simmer for 15 minutes.  Taste and add more sugar if desired.  Serve hot or leave at a simmer to scent the room.

Pass the Turkey

1 shot Wild Turkey 101 Bourbon
1 ¼ shot apple cider
1 tablespoon cranberry jelly
1 sprig fresh sage
1 sprig fresh thyme

Muddle sage and thyme with apple cider.  Add ice, top with Wild Turkey and cranberry jelly. Shake well, strain over ice in a glass rimmed with turkey jus and seasoned breadcrumbs.
