Some people like egg nog, some people don't. With the main ingredients being sweetened milk/cream and whipped eggs (and maybe salmonella
), it's no wonder people added alcohol to make it drinkable. But the beverage is popular enough that there are tons of variations on it. Pretty much any kind or combination of hard liquor can be added, and it can be spiced up with spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. If you like egg nog, especially the alcoholic part, maybe you'll also like the following "disgusting" alcoholic drinks.
- The Powder Room in Los Angeles is offering a swanky $500 alcoholic milkshake called The Velvet Goldmine. This is no ordinary milkshake -- it features premium spirits, edible gold, and Belgian chocolate, and it's topped with a Swarovski Nirvana Montana crystal ring that retails for $190. [url]
- If you like heartburn, then you might like 100,000 Scovilles Naga Chilli Vodka. This spicy vodka has the same level of heat as a Habanero chili, plus it's got 40% alcohol. Check out the warning video for this product! [url]
- Craving tacos and an alcoholic beverage? Two words: Taco Gin. Apparently, gin is just "flavored vodka." To create Taco Gin, steep taco seasoning in 100-proof vodka in a jar for at least 48 hours, strain the mixture through a coffee filter, and cut it down to 90-proof by diluting with a bottle of 80-proof vodka. It shouldn't be a surprise that the reaction to the taste test was "That's awful!" [url]
