Watch Dave Wondrich Take You Through the Only Eggnog Recipe You’ll Need


Historian, writer, and barman David Wondrich helms this new, enhanced digital edition of How to Mix Drinks: Or, The Bon-vivant’s Companion, the classic drinks manual written by the legendary Jerry Thomas. The book is now available as a free title through Google Play, and in one video, Wondrich, who is currently writing the Oxford Companion to Spirits and Cocktails, gets behind the bar at Dram to take you through the book’s shaken “Egg Nogg” recipe, which might come in handy for you right about now.

If you're not feeling the egg nog, here are recipes for three other drinks, the Brandy Crusta, Sherry Cobbler, and the famous, flaming Blue Blazer.
