Drink of the Week: Spiced Nog Flip

With the launch of our November/December issue, we’re officially kickstarting the holiday season with today’s Drink of the Week—and our current cover cocktail—the Spiced Nog Flip. A good nog is essential during the holidays, but if you don’t want to deal with mixing up a large batch, try this one-cup variation from Victoria, BC, bartender Nate Caudle. Combining spiced rum, baking spices, half-and-half and a whole egg, it’s the perfect cold-weather cocktail when you’re craving some simple seasonal sipping.

Spiced Nog Flip
2 oz. spiced rum
3 tsp. confectioner’s sugar
1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 oz. half-and-half
1 whole egg (pasteurized if you like)
Dash of pure vanilla extract
Tools: shaker, strainer, fine-strainer
Glass: nog
Garnish: freshly grated nutmeg, cinnamon stick
