What the heck is Coffee Nog?

What the heck is Coffee Nog?

For the past couple of winters, HDC has worked with a local creamery to bring Gig Harbor a small batch craft egg nog. The egg nog has been SO popular over the past couple of years, we thought we would try something totally unique and new and work with the creamery to make a Coffee Nog and Vanilla Nog.

Think egg nog with less spice and made with either cold press coffee or real vanilla beans in it. As an avid iced coffee drinker, adding either of these to my iced coffee in the morning is like a little dose of surprise and delight.

Even better then adding the Coffee or Vanilla Nog to my morning coffee is using them to make cocktails.

Check it out: Coffeenogmartini6235 The Coffee Cream
1 oz HDC Coffee Vodka*
3oz Coffee Nog

Shake and serve in a martini glass.
Garnish with chocolate shavings

1oz HDC Blood Orange Vodka*
3oz Vanilla Nog

Serve over ice

*Substitute Blood Orange Vodka for Strawberry, Blueberry, Raspberry, Huckleberry, or Mango Vodka (40% off!) if you like.

The nogs are only available at HDC Waterfront in downtown Gig Harbor and must be kept refrigerated.

Next up - we're going to try making boozy creamsicles (stay tuned)!
