Trick Nog

Trick Nog creamy holiday cocktail with overproof bourbon, cherry brandy, orange juice, cream, brown sugar syrup, and a whole egg

The Trick Nog is a holiday specialty from Trick Dog (get it? ahahaaa) in San Francisco. It’s a nice cherry-and-orange-spice twist on the original, with plenty of creamy body and a pleasantly fruitcake-y scent. Overproof bourbon is ideal, but the regular-octane stuff’ll do.



Dry-shake all ingredients first without ice, then again with ice added. Double-strain through a fine mesh strainer into a chilled cocktail or coupe glass. Garnish with a dusting of freshly-grated nutmeg.

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
