The Historic Arkansas Museum
has announced the winners of its 10th Ever Nog-Off, held last Friday night at the museum during 2nd Friday Art Night.
But before we get to the winners, note this: HAM's website has recipes for every Nog-Off winner
since the beginning! They are all variations on eggs, cream and booze, with little differences here and there. If you are going nogging this year, check the page out.
