Now that I am back home and starting to plan out my holiday menus for family and friends, it’s time to start thinking about what I will be serving. I LOVE being the host for the holidays. I take a lot of pride in creating special memories for those I love. From the delicious food, to classic cocktails, the holidays are about special moments for me as I get older. J.P. Wiser’s brought Catherine along on a special trip earlier this year, and I recently found my own bottle of J.P. Wiser’s Triple Barrel Rye while tidying up the office. Yes, I keep the special bottles in the office until we move. Can you tell we need more space? So I thought I’d share a holiday classic just in time for the holidays that we can all enjoy together.
While touring the J.P. Wiser’s production facility earlier this year, Catherine was able to see firsthand the passion and commitment to quality that this Canadian brand holds to the highest standard. We’ve got a lot of choices these days, but knowing that Canada plays such a huge role in the production of their products from start to finish really helps me appreciate J.P. Wiser’s so much more.
We’re always encouraging others to travel and explore the world. But last week, @CatherinesCabinet didn’t have to go very far to discover some things she’s never seen! On a wonderful trip to Windsor, Catherine was introduced to the world of Canadian Whiskey from picking the grains, to production, to aging and blending and then bottling (and tasting, of course). All through the @jpwisersca Distillery Experience! #HoldItHigh #JPWisers #DTDTravels
Using my bottle of J.P. Wiser’s Triple Barrel Rye, I thought about my Dad and what he would want to enjoy with us. I smile when I think about Christmases past where my brother, my husband and my dad sat around the table sipping Egg Nogg together. My mom and I would be in the kitchen and they would tell stories and cheesy jokes, laughing and focusing on nothing else other than spending time together. That is what the holidays are to me now. Creating those kind of memories every year in the best way I can.
So without further ado, here is the recipe for the J.P.Wiser’s True North Nogg that I will be using this year for our family and friends.
- 1 oz. J.P. Wiser’s Triple Barrel Rye
- 0.5 oz. J.P. Wiser’s Vanilla
- 0.5 oz. Havana Club 7 Year Old
- 0.25 oz. Kahlua Teaspoon Shaved Nutmeg
- 1 oz. Brown Sugar
- Pinch All Spice
- Dark Chocolate
- Vanilla Ice Cream
- Rinse a rocks glass with the Kahlua.
- Combine all other ingredients in a shaker and shake.
- Pour into the rocks glass, sprinkle with chocolate and cinnamon and enjoy
