Queen of 3rd Place
Feeling experimental after falling - KERPLAT! - during my evening run (that's as good an excuse as any), I opened up one of my recipe books, this one's from the UK, it's.........different...let's see, what do I have laying around...yessss...
1 1/2 oz light rum
1/2 oz white creme the cacao
1 oz heavy cream (I made do with half-and-half)
shake it all up with ice and strain, then drop into the center
1 tsp cherry brandy
Very festive and holiday-like and all that. I'll give it a thumbs up and suggest it for those who cringe at the thought or mere name of egg nog.
