  • FARRIS DOES IT AGAIN: "Taster's Choice" winner Bridget Fennell Farris serves up some killer nog to an unsuspecting Pam Smith at the 10th Ever Nog-Off.


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. 

Now, for the winners:

The People's Choice: The Capital Hotel crew's "Capital Egg Nog." HAM reports that imbiber declared: "Tastes like World Peace!" The crew includes Matthew Dunn, Zach Pullam, Tyler Rogers and bartender David Cash.

Not Your Great, Great, Great Grandfather's Eggnog: This win in this category, created to compete with the favorites of the denizens of Mount Holly, went to Cache Restaurant's Matthew Cooper and Brian Townley. The name: "Firefly Chai Egg Nog."

Taster's Choice: Bridget Fennell Farris wins again with "John Robert Jackson's Eggnog." This Kentucky heritage eggnog is the one to beat, having won prizes in 2011 and 2012. It includes a quart of whiskey, more whiskey and rum.
