Tis the Season
Between catching up in the office from my brief Thanksgiving sojourn and then rushing off to Dublin for business, I have barely had a moment to appreciate the beginning of the Christmas season. After my return, having endured the claustrophobic tedium of my flight, I bought some egg nog from Ronnybrook Farms, in upstate New York, at the grocery store, to be accompanied by some bourbon. Unfortunately, a frantic schedule has impeded my plans to decorate my little artificial Christmas tree, as well as postponed my gift shopping; fortunately, an egg nog cocktail is an immediate and satisfying way to infuse some festive cheer into even the busiest of days. I have a feeling I will be imbibing quite a few as a rich liquid dessert, served with some Vince Guaraldi, from now until Christmas Day.
