As the leaves change to glorious rust and pumpkin and ruby reds in regions blessed with a "true autumn", the desire for something spicy to drink while watching the theatre of the changing leaves is definitely on order. This drink makes the grade, and then some.
When I was a teen back in the late '60's we would take Dr. Pepper and heat it on the stove, add a slice of lemon and boy was it good in the winter. This recipe reminded me of that and sounds interesting.
This sweet cocktail can be used as a dessert, too. Though similar to regular eggnog, the white chocolate liqueur makes this drink even more decadent. Serve with cookies or a simple dark chocolate poundcake for a rich ending to the evening.
An eggnog mixture of old, always enjoyed on January First!
A note here is the selection of the rum; there are many favourites, but I would advocate for Lemon Hart Dark, as being the best "mixing" rum to go with the eggnog. (yes you can do this with white tum, Rye, or even Scotch and Brandy, but I wouldn't thank you for the last two!)
The drink of choice of too many New Years Day Levees!
