Bob Hofman’s Yule Grog

By admin

Well, this isn’t exactly a glogg recipe, but it’s on here for two reasons …

1). It’s Jim’s dads recipe

2). It’s damn good

It’s written down exactly how he wrote it down for me. Here goes …

  • Get a big punch bowl
  • Use 3 pints of good vanilla ice cream (don’t use cheap vanilla ice cream!)
  • Add 1/2 cup of dark rum to the ice cream in the punch bowl
  • Add 1/4 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
  • 1 bottle of dry champagne (white)
  • 1 bottle of red burgundy wine
  • 1 bottle of sparkling water
  • 1/2 cup Curacao
  • 1/4 cup Yellow Chartreuse
  • 1/4 cup Jamaican rum (yes, in addition to the rum above)
  • Stir in 1/2 to 3/4 cup of super fine sugar

Mix until all ingredients meld.  Chill for several hours for peak flavor.

My dad claims this “Yule Grog” is almost as good as Bill’s world famous line used to secure a date with the fairer sex:  “Have you ever been to the opera?”

We’ll be adding more of my dad’s (and other) holiday drink recipes to this page, so stay tuned!
