Silky egg custard spiked with nutmeg and Uncle Nearest whiskey.
Yeah. We spiked the eggnog.
Jeni’s grandfather always spiked his eggnog with whiskey. (It’s the Midwestern way — and a holiday non-negotiable.) Our friends at Uncle Nearest blend small-batch, Tennessee whiskey that’s smooth sipping, soul-warming, and that honors Nearest Green, the first known African American master distiller. We’ve made many iterations of our nutmeg-laced boozy custard over the years. But this one steeped in history, tradition, and love, is one you’ll never forget.
