Egg Nog RecipeFor National Egg Nog Day on December 24, we’re celebrating with the original Four Roses Egg Nog recipe that came from a Life magazine ad in 1936.

Master Distiller Jim Rutledge tells he changes it up a bit by using a bit more Bourbon and forgetting the Rum. They still regularly receive requests for this recipe at Four Roses Distillery and we’re sharing it with you below along with a photo of that original Life magazine advertisement.
