Serious Eats: Recipes
Instead of rum, brandy, or whiskey, this nog from Anvil Bar & Refuge in Houston uses a generous pour of Angostura bitters as the base spirit. The Angostura adds a punch of winter spices (and a burnt sienna color) to the classic drink.
Note: To make rich turbinado syrup, combine 1 cup water with 2 cups turbinado sugar in a small saucepan and heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved. Cool before using. Simple syrup will keep in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
