Pumpkin SNAP Nog

It is that time of year again for heavy drinking and suggestive outfits.  So time to break out the pumpkin drinks and this year’s cocktail it is a pumpkin nog, yup that is right pumpkin nog.

Art in the Age makes two spirits that I love to play with this time of year Root and {ginger} SNAP and this time I found a reason to use {ginger} SNAP.  Now this is not just a pour, pour, shake and strain cocktail… this one needs a little prep time.  It is so worth it, so think a day or two ahead then you can enjoy. What is the prep time for vanilla simple syrup and spiced simple syrup and they are needed to make this cocktail.
