A Gentleman’s Guide to Spiking Egg Nog

Ladies and gentlemen, it’s eggnog season—and while most holiday parties get by with either dark rum or bourbon in their mix, we’ve got a tip to set your tincture apart. It’s time to pick up a bottle of brandy.

It’s tastier than the other two options, with floral notes and enough sharpness to add more than just kick to the final mix. Unlike bourbon, it’s not something we normally keep on our liquor shelf, but if you’re mixing up a full bowl of the stuff, that’s hardly a concern.

If you’re really serious, the next step is making your own ’nog—but unless you’ve got a serious yen for whisking, you might be better off sticking with the dairy aisle.
