Golden "Egg" Nog

Golden "Egg" Nog

The first few weeks that pumpkin makes it's grand return to the flavor spectrum, it's safe to say that 90% of the population is ecstatic. Pumpkin beer! Pumpkin lattes! Pumpkin donuts, coffee, milkshakes, ice cream, martinis... what ISN'T offered in pumpkin flavor?! But when you find your pumpkin quota has officially been reached (and potentially surpassed), where do you go next?

Well, we've got an ideal beverage to help you transition from the iconic flavor of autumn to a swirl of wintery cinnamon and spice. The liquor is optional, and can also be increased, depending on your preferences (and the time of day)!

I hope you enjoy this new beauty of a cocktail that's sure to become a go-to as you deck the halls, light the menorah, or simply settle in for the holiday season.
