LCBO Food & Drink Holiday 2020


We asked three LCBO buyers for holiday gift ideas. Here are the seasonal purchases they’re most excited about. Gift-off

’Nog jam Most eggnog recipes are built for a crowd and require sepa- rating eggs, whipping whites, and a whole lot of work. Sometimes you want a rich, creamy glass of ’nog without a big-batch commitment. Enter our easy Eggnog for Two (recipe on page 252), which is a classic Flip fortified with rum and Cognac, enriched with cream and dusted with nut- meg. Sure, it requires a little more elbow grease to shake, but you can still have drinks up in minutes. DRINK OF THE SEASON
