While it is often customary in many cultures to have wine and beer with the Christmas meal, people have been mixing up boozy cups of cheer for centuries. For this shot-sized, end of the year episode, Prairie picks a sampling of traditional holiday drinks from around the world.

Homemade eggnog from the Bit by a Fox Blog archives is featured for this week's cocktail:

Foxy Nog
6 eggs
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 1/2 cup whole milk
1 cup heavy cream (or for a dairy free version, 4 cups of Almond Milk)
2 teaspoons freshly grated nutmeg
4 oz brandy
4 oz spiced rum
2 oz sherry
fresh nutmeg for garnish

Place the eggs in a blender by themselves and beat for just under a minute. Add the sugar for another 40 seconds, until blended and then add the rest of the ingredients. Blend until it looks like everything is well combined. After the mixture has a chance to chill for at least an hour, you are ready to get your nog on! You can serve this drink up in a coupe or a teacup or you can add a few cubes of ice to lighten it up. But remember the freshly grated nutmeg for the topper is key.
