Can one person drink at every bar in San Francisco?

Old School Eggnog

After two giant plates of Thanksgiving goodness, I was left with an overwhelming craving for a cold glass of eggnog. As the stores are all closed, I pulled out The Savoy Cocktail Book for inspiration. What I found was an easy, classic eggnog that can be made from ingredients you probably already have in the kitchen this time of year, and in much less time than more modern eggnog recipes.

Old School Eggnog

1 jigger (1/2 oz) Sailor Jerry Rum (Any spirit can be substituted, but heavily spiced rum lends itself especially well to this drink.)

1 oz milk, half and half, heavy cream or whipping cream

1 egg

1 tsp white sugar (or simple syrup)

nutmeg or pumpkin pie spice

Shake rum, cream, egg and sugar thoroughly in a shaker with ice, until egg forms a thick foam. Strain into a chilled glass and sprinkle with nutmeg or pumkin pie spice.

See? Easy peasy, with no need for cooking. And quite delicious, too. Happy Thanksgiving!
