  • 1/4 cup sweet vermouth
  • fresh grated cinnamon

This blog attempts to collect some of the things I try to create with food and booze. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes I fail. My hope is to entertain and maybe help people think a little harder about what they decide to eat and drink.

    Because eggnog is NOT caloric enough. 😉

  4. I will drink butter any darn day of the week LOL..

    This makes me happy. When I lived in France, I began to put butter in hot chocolate on a whim. Spectacular. I say YES to drinking butter!

  6. rutheh says:

    Yes, the phrase drinking butter is delicious wording. Going back to the gym in January!

  7. This sounds so decadent!!!

  8. Tori says:

    In the near future, i am seeing a taste test in my house: Hot buttered nog versus hot buttered rum!

  9. I am so far in favor of your butter-drinking proposal that I would consider it a perfectly appropriate recipe for Hot Buttered Rum if it included only the titular ingredients. This Nog, however, one-ups the concept I’m pretty sure!

    decadence in a cup !

  11. Hotly Spiced says:

    I am a big fan of butter but I’ve never put it in a drink. I guess it’s only a teaspoon! Must give it a try.

  12. Fantastic – have never heard of it before, but it looks amazing!

  13. Looks like butter tea from Bhutan!

  14. Sissi says:

    Greg, you want to destroy my liver already tired by Christmas and post-Christmas drinks? This looks delicious and very exotic for someone who has never had an eggnog.

  15. Eva Taylor says:

    Holy cow! Hot buttered nog sounds so decadent. Do you use sweet or salted butter?

  16. egg me on says:

    A boozy melted stick of butter! Mmmmmmmmmm.

  17. ChgoJohn says:

    Jeez, Greg, It isn’t even 9:00 am and you’ve got me salivating over a cocktail!

  18. zestybeandog says:

    I’m not a huge fan of egg nog but this looks like something I’d sip on… I guess it’s just the carton of eggnog at the grocery that scares me 😉 Cheers!

  19. nancyc says:

    That sounds good–I really like eggnog, and have to have it every holiday season!

  20. Rachel says:

    Oh my! I’ll take mine with a smidge of rum, too, please… mmmmmmmmmm!!

  21. A very Paula Deen-worthy drink!

  22. peasepudding says:

    It’s not even cold here in NZ and I fancy a cup of that.

  23. spicegirlfla says:

    You two make the most interesting cocktails!! I just can’t keep up on my testing of all your recipes!! That swirl of butter puts the taste of this drink over the top good!

  24. Haha…ya I’ll drink some butter. Fire it up bartender!

  25. rsmacaalay says:

  26. aFrankAngle says:

  27. I must have this and very soon!

  28. ceciliag says:

    Butter in a drink.. I’m in! c

  29. Kristy says:

    LOL! Yes, I could drink butter. It must be genetic. I’ve seen the kids sneak pads of butter into their mouths at restaurants. 😉

  30. Watch out, Paula Deen….that looks positively, wickedly, good!

  31. Caroline says:

    Paula Deen, is that you!?

  32. Ha – this made me laugh. It looks quite tempting.

  33. Korena says:

    Oh my goodness. Just what eggnog needs – butter!!

  34. Lisa says:

    Good grief! I guess no one ever said that eggnog was a diet drink.

  35. This looks so good. I absolutely love eggnog.

  36. Scary — did Homer Simpson sneak into your house? No, I guess not — he would have made it with beer. Happy New Year!
