Yup, that’s right. Beer-Nog. It may sound crazy, but it’s really really good. Trust me.
I debuted my version of the classic, which is said to have originated in Medieval Britain, last week at a holiday event held at my local gourmet market, Farm & Coast.
Our pals across the lake were spiking their eggnogs with wine and ale, first calling it “Posset”, and later “Eggnog”. Some historians believe the term “Egg-Nog” was Old English for “Strong Beer”.
Whatever the case may be, we can all agree that this drink is quite the guilty pleasure, and should be enjoyed with large groups.
My beer-based recipe is below. If you decide to make it, let us know what you think…
- Spike with hard alcohol if desired (i.e., Brandy, Rum, Whiskey)
