How to spike store-bought egg nog
The egg nogs are starting to appear in grocery stores, but they lack a certain ... punch! What alcohol can you put in egg nog to give it a kick?
Most egg nogs include brandy, whiskey or rum. You can even use a mixture of all three.
Blended whiskys are best, and Southern Comfort is popular, too. (That's why Southern Comfort makes a branded, but non-alcoholic, egg nog.)
The other option is to buy pre-spiked egg nog. We're partial to the Pennsylvania Dutch Egg Nog because it includes all three liquors, and the Evan Williams which of course is spiked with Evan Williams whiskey.
