I hate Tuesdays. Monday gets a bad rap but Tuesdays are definitely the worst. Monday, yah, the weekend is over and you have to go to work but you’re rested and refreshed. Then Tuesday comes and you realize how long the week is and that there’s still four more long days until the weekend. Just hold on until Wednesday, you’re half way there.
So to make Tuesday’s just a little bit better I’ll feature a weekly drink. It might be a cocktail, a wine, or a yummy craft beer.
Spiced Rum and Eggnog
How to make a delicious rum and eggnog cocktail:
Fill a highball glass with lots of ice, they taste better when really cold.
Add 1 oz of Sailor Jerry’s spiced rum. Or 1 1/2oz if today has been extra Tuesday-y
Fill remainder of glass with good quality eggnog like Avalon (available at most grocery stores in the Vancouver area). But try to keep a ratio of at least 4 to 1 of eggnog to rum or else it’ll be very sweet.
Stir extra well. The eggnog is pretty heavy and tends to sit at the bottom, so stir away or the first sip will be strooong.
Top with a shake of powdered nutmeg.
Turn on some Bing Crosby and enjoy while knowing Tuesday is all but over now.
Before adding ice rim glass with a mixture of sugar and cinnamon for extra deliciousness
Also, if it’s still too sweet for your liking, add a splash of milk.
