No, not this nog:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nog

Blend:  1 really ripe banana, a cup or so of soymilk, a generous splash of vanilla extract, a big ol' slug o' brandy, a glug of grade B maple syrup or agave nectar, and some freshly grated nutmeg.*  

Pour and drink.  Actually, wash your blender first -- especially if it's a strong drink or else you may be too tipsy to care and end up scrubbing your dirty dried out blender the next morning.

It is essential that you use freshly grated nutmeg.  Invest in a whole nutmeg nut -- you won't be sorry, they don't taste like sawdust, and they last forever.  Also, you can get them cheaply in the Latino, Indian, or Chinese section of the grocery store.  While you're at it, that's where you should get most of your herbs and spices.  They're cheaper and equal or better quality.  Stop buying spices priced for white people unless you like getting ripped off.
