This is the nog of your dreams. It’s rich and foamy and looks as impressive as it tastes. A note on the beer: You want to get the carbonation out of the milk stout before mixing it. Either get Left Hand’s nitro bottled version, or roll a regular stout back and forth between two glasses until it’s flat.

Falcon Gravy
By Keith Werner, Eat Street Social (below)

(makes two drinks)
2 ounces milk stout
1 ounce Bakers 107-proof bourbon
¾ ounce honey syrup*
½ ounce Cynar
½ ounce espresso
¼ ounce lemon juice
1 egg white

Method: Shake all ingredients together over ice until cold. Then strain liquid off the ice into a new shaker glass and shake again until quite frothy. Pour into two coupe glasses.

*Honey Syrup: add just enough water to a sauce pan of honey (about 1:3) to loosen it up to a syrup consistency.
