Hazelnut-apple Eggnog Cocktail

This boozy eggnog is Oregon-style holiday cheer in a glass. Creamy eggnog, fragrant hazelnut liqueur, and your favorite local brandy combine to make a holiday quaffer your guests will love. Feel free to swap pear brandy in for apple — both are made right here in Oregon and are delicious with eggnog and spice.
