I am the worst bartender ever. But, here’s the deal:
I like to mix whiskey and egg nog… and it’s that easy. Drop some whiskey in a glass and cover it with egg nog. I used to think that mixed drinks meant half alcohol, half other ingredients, but fortunately, I’ve learned that it’s usually just 1 shot of alcohol and fill the rest of the glass with the other ingredient(s), so now when people come by for a drink, they don’t immediately pass out. Yeah, back in the day, I would take a 12 ounce glass and fill it with half rum, half coke and just hand it to some one like that’s what it was supposed to be, and if you couldn’t handle, I would say, “Psh, you’re a light weight.” Little did I know I was killing people’s livers.
Anyway, I recommend the following materials for an egg nog and whiskey mixer:
- 1 juice glass
- silk nog (or egg nog, whatever)
- the cheapest whiskey you can find
- I recommend at least one shot of whiskey, but one and a half shots is probably the right amount – add to taste.
- a sprinkle (don’t go crazy) of cinnamon is also a good idea, but you need to mix that in thoroughly
That’s it – it’s that easy. Drink up, drink responsibly, and Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and Happy Whatever.
