The Pairing

Hogfather, by Terry Pratchett

The Reasoning

“It’s supposed to be jolly, with mistletoe and holly, and–and other things ending in olly! It’s a time when people want to feel good about things and eat until they explode!”

Well, naturally I want to help get you started. Here I’m making an eggnog and ice-cream milkshake with spiced rum and cinnamon whiskey for a festive kick that’ll help you to work on your HO HO HO.

The Recipe

You will need:

  • Blender
  • Drinking Straw
  • 2 oz spiced rum
  • 1 oz cinnamon whiskey
  • 2 scoops vanilla ice cream
  • 1 cup eggnog
  • Whipped cream (canned is fine)
  • Nutmeg
  • Small ginger snap/gingerbread man for garnish (optional)

Combine rum, whiskey, ice cream and eggnog in blender. Blend until smooth.

Pour into a tall glass and top with whipped cream. Sprinkle a little nutmeg on top and garnish with gingerbread man. Insert straw and enjoy, perhaps while trying to think of other things that end in olly. 🙂
