All Things Nog

Some flavors are so traditionally “holiday” to me that it doesn’t seem right to indulge any other time of the year. But once December rolls around, I’m all about candy-cane-coated everything, rum-soaked raisins and oh, the eggnog.

Nog finds its way into lots of my drinks and recipes this time of year. I add the almondmilk version to my coffee, I soak panettone or brioche in traditional eggnog for Baked Eggnog French Toast and I sip nog with a bit of rum, a dash of Angostura bitters and a generous grating of fresh nutmeg.

If you’re a fellow nog fan, make sure to stop by any of our US stores Friday, December 12th to Sunday, December 14th. We’re having a weekend sale, and it’s all about the nog!
