Balvene 30. Had some on my birthday - good Lord, most amazing thing I've ever drank before.

Splash of water vs a rock or two - explain?

Is that bad?  The ice just melts into that "splash of water" effect.  But it's tempered as you drink.

That's my preferred scotch preparation.  One or two "rocks" depending on the size.

Bourbon just gets ruined with ice.

I won’t go that far 😂 but it definitely makes me nostalgic as all hell every time I drink it.

It’s “the holidays” in a glass.

Get some 12 Dogs.

The guy who created Xmas Ale left and went to Thirsty Dog apparently and he’s the guy who created 12 Dogs, or so I’m told.

I honestly might prefer 12 Dogs, it’s that good.

I think I might do a basic eggnog cocktail for my family Christmas party but don’t know if I should use bourbon or rum. Hmm. 

Also thinking of doing a chocolate peppermint martini for it or for my work or something.

When in doubt...

Look up the Jerry Thomas recipe for Eggnog, and follow that. It's a lot of yolks, a lot of sugar, and then you froth the whites, and lightly fold them in. You could use a Cognac or Brandy for the booze too.

You could always just make a Grasshopper at work, or a variation on it. It's creme de menthe, creme de cacao, and heavy cream.

If you want to have fun with a winter drink at work, start doing a Tom and Jerry. It's made almost like an eggnog, but tastes like a liquid sugar cookie. It's traditionally only served when the temp gets to 20 or less.
