'Tis the Season to be Hungover

You know your signature daiquiri is a hit when you have to create a Frequently Asked Questions about it.  For some reason, none of my friends share my enthusiasm for the Tony's Liquor Eggnog Daiquiri (I think it is, essentially, folk art).  When I visited Tony's recently and spoke with the owner, he reached under the counter and whipped out this Eggnog F.A.Q.  And, because the world needs it, here is the high-res version, should you need to print out a copy. 

I'm no math whiz, but if a "batch" of Eggnog contains over a half-gallon of Spiced Rum, and extra shots are available...my God, no wonder these things sell so well to the Line Avenue set.  When you think about it, it's so smart: Line Avenue Self-Medicators + Holiday Stress and Contempt + Socially Acceptable, Insanely Strong Alcoholic Beverage That People Are Entertained By.  That is a recipe for success.


  1. I don't know who your friends are (well, except me) but my friends have been quite smitten with the drink for years. They get way more excited about its arrival than the actual holidays that are the cause of it.

  2. I completely agree! Either I need new friends, or we need to spend more time together! Over Eggnog Daiquiris, perhaps?
