Drink: Bourbon Pumpkin Eggnog

Ingredients: Bulleit Bourbon, eggs, pumpkin purée, spices

Our take: The texture of this drink is a silky introduction to impending colder days. Pumpkin provides some savory notes to balance the sweetness of the bourbon, and the typical baking spices are warming on the tip of your tongue.

Drink: Jingle Ball Nog

Ingredients: Cognac, Amontillado sherry, peanut butter, almond milk, pandan, cream, nougat syrup, egg, nutmeg

Our take: This is high-rent eggnog, in which sherry and cognac add depth and subtlety to a rich cocktail. Peanut butter is a welcome addition, with its nuttiness complementing the nutmeg and adding smoothness to the drink’s texture.
