Cocktail Friday: Coconog

Posted on 19 Dec 2014 at 12:31pm

With Christmas nearly upon us, who doesn’t like some delicious eggnog. It’s easy enough to spike the nog, but how about making your own? Here’s how the folks at Tommy Bahama — which offers not just clothing, but also a restaurant and bar in certain locations — suggest doing it. Of course, you can always buy the egg nog at the store, but this is the fun part.)

Eggnog prep:

5 egg yolks

¾ cup sugar

1 cup heavy cream

1 tsp. vanilla

½ tsp. nutmeg

2 cups coconut milk

1 oz. Jim Beam

1 oz. Cruzan coconut rum

Making it:

Nog: Whisk yolks with sugar until creamy and the sugar begins to dissolve; add cream and coconut milk; stir in vanilla and nutmeg. Chill.

Cocktail: Add a few ounces of nog mix into a Boston shaker, then add in liquors; shake with ice. Strain into a martini glass and garnish with grated nutmeg.
