The holiday season is in full swing. Whether you’re hosting a party or having a quiet night away from the hustle and bustle, we’ve got some cocktail recipes that are perfect for curling up by the fire or ringing in the new year.

Cachaça Egg Nog (Multnomah Whiskey Library, 1124 SW Alder St, Portland, OR 97205)

  • 12 eggs
  • 1 1/3 cups superfine sugar and 3 tablespoons on the side
  • 1 pint heavy cream
  • 1 quart whole milk
  • 1 750ml bottle of Novo Fogo Barrel Aged Cachaça
  • 1 tbsp real vanilla extract

Directions:
Separate the egg whites from the yolks into separate large bowls. Slowly add the sugar in a fine stream to the egg yolks while whisking vigorously until the sugar is completely dissolved. Then slowly whisk in the heavy cream, whole milk, and vanilla extract to the yolk-sugar mixture. In the other bowl, add 1 tablespoon of sugar to the egg whites and beat until stiff peaks form and the egg whites take up about five times their original volume. Fold the beaten egg whites into the yolk and cream mixture. Pour the entire mixture into a large jug using a funnel, then pour in a bottle of Novo Fogo Barrel-Aged Cachaça. Screw the cap onto the jug and give it a hearty shake to combine. Refrigerate and serve with a fine dusting of freshly grated nutmeg on top.
