    Broguiere's eggnog is too sweet for me. But I have successfully mixed it with a little milk, cream, and Kentucky Eggnog Spike, a spiced blend of bourbon, brandy, and rum -- see epicurious.com for recipe. Leftover Spike in a sipping glass goes well with cold pizza, Spam sandwiches, oatmeal, ... anything needing (or not needing) a boost.

      Harry: I agree with you on the Kentucky Eggnog Spike from Epi; it fixes up any eggnog real nice ;) Though, I must say, Broguiere's ain't too bad.

      I haven't seen it anywhere yet... Henry's in Fullerton often has some of the first (even scooping the Unnecessarily Large Whole Paycheque in Tustin).

      I find it's very thick and undrinkable unless cut with liquor (or milk, if you're a "virgin" eggnog drinker).

      What it IS great for un-cut, for the one week the seasons overlap, is drowning guavas in it.

        Any sightings? I checked Studio City Ralphs a couple days ago and was told they should have some in within the week.

              Bristol Farms normally has it early on. I will check out Manhattan Beach this weekend of the weather cools down. I have a fresh nutmeg grinder and a little brandy and I am happy in front of a fire. Its like a meal in itself :)

              They have had it the last couple years at Gelsons. I like it with a little spiced rum.

                It's even better with a LOT of spiced rum. You do kinda want to be home for the evening...

                Glad to see this thread pop up just in time for the Jollyday Season. Thanks to a213b for performing this valuable public service.

                Gelson's Silverlake about 30 minutes ago. It's actually on sale.

                  I got some at the ralphs on wilshire/hauser by the variety building. Haven't seen it at ralphs on 3rd & labrea yet, nor the pavillions at vine/melrose (was just at pavillions yesterday).

                    I saw it today at the same Ralph's as well, but I was very sad that Broguiere's regular milk has all but disappeared from their shelves.

                                Why is it worth the trip when I can just go to the grocery store? What's the advantage?

                                  More than likely you'll get it a little cheaper and the dairy offers other products you don't know about. Like the Chocolate milk, which is from ANOTHER WORLD. And if your store is out of it the dairy is sure to have it.

                                    The chocolate milk seems to be in most every store; I've found it to be FAR more common than the Egg Nog, though I'm sure part of that is based on the seasonality of the latter.

                                    I also don't think the chocolate milk is all that great, but that's really neither here nor there.

                                      Sighted at Gelson's Studio City a week ago, Friday the 19th.

                                      (They have the chocolate milk, too.)
