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.
