Authentic Eggnog (Hickory’s Smokehouse) By @SpectreUK

Authentic Eggnog (Hickory’s Smokehouse)

I do love warming spicy comfort food, especially this time of year when it can be cold and damp outside. One of my favourite meals out is Chicken and Sausage Gumbo. I've been meaning to try this Authentic Eggnog from Hickory's Smokehouse for years. I must have been good lately, as whilst I was tucking into my Gumbo the other day, I was treated to a bottle.

This Authentic Eggnog is spiced rum and brandy with cream, egg and spices. At 12% in volume, the back of the fetching cardboard container recommends to heat it in a pan and share it out in glasses with a cinnamon stick. Sadly bereft of cinnamon sticks, but not too sadly, as I'm not a big fan of cinnamon, and with a lack of interest in sharing with anyone, I filled a mug and wandered over to the microwave.

Mince Pies and Cinabar's homemade Christmas Cake on a plate at the ready, I took a tentative sip. Okay, so, I may have overheated it in the microwave. After waiting a time, the mixture of spiced rum and brandy warmed up my tastebuds straight away, with the creaminess and added spices complementing my dessert perfectly. I haven't tasted many eggnogs in the past, but I have to say that this is the best one I've tried. I'd heartily recommend it.
