Learn Bar Tending: Whiskey & Egg Nog

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.

  1. You should top off your egg nog with nutmeg instead.
    It makes it more festive and brings out the flavor of the nog.

    • gotcha.. so dash it on the top? I’ve tried putting cinnamon on the top and it gets kinda… I don’t know how to explain it, but I find if I put the whiskey in the bottom of the glass, then add the cinnamon and finally pour the eggnog on top if it, it mixes better – sometimes I mix it up with a spoon.

      So I guess what I’m asking is, should I just throw the nutmeg on top and leave it or mix it in?
