We ring in the New Year with Champagne. But before the clock strikes midnight, we dazzle guests with flaming egg nog.
The key to flaming is 150-proof rum—different from the 80-proof rum most people have in the house for cocktails.
MAKE or buy the nog (if you purchase it, spice it up with 1-1/2 ounces of spiced rum per 4 ounces of nog).
CHILL and pour into a Martini glass if you don’t have glass cups (but if you decide to invest in glass cups, they’re great for coffee and tea all year-round).
FLOAT the rum. Float half an ounce of 150-proof rum on top of the nog.
GRIND fresh nutmeg to garnish.
IGNITE the drink in front of the guest, using a long wooden fireplace match. It’s holiday magic!
Find egg nog recipes in the Cocktails & Spirits Section of THE NIBBLE webzine.
Get ready to light the match and ignite the New Year’s Eve festivities.
*The Mount Gay rum shown in the photo is 80-proof, not 150-proof: 80-proof is for drinking, 150-proof is for igniting.
