TV Dinners: The Office's Nogasake Revisited

TV Dinners: The Office's Nogasake Revisited

As BuzzSugar pointed out, NBC reran The Office's holiday special last night. To relive the big laughs and good times, the hubby and I decided we would suck it up and do what YumSugar reader Kjell suggested. Yes that's right, we decided to brave it and actually try a Nogasake.

So we picked up some of Bud's eggnog (one of my favorite brands - super rich and creamy) and a small bottle of Gekkeikan sake. Then we went home, waited for The Office to begin, and made ourselves a drink. To learn how my experience was,

I started by pouring 1 1/2 oz of sake into a glass and then topping it off with 1/2 oz of eggnog. Disgustingly, the liquids separated just like oil and vinegar (with the eggnog sinking below the sake). So I grabbed a spoon, stirred until the liquids were one, counted to three and took a sip.

It was horrible. As in just wrong, like bad milk. It was as if the sake somehow instantly soured the eggnog (and no, the nog was not bad already). It didn't curdle it, just soured it. The two ingredients just did not want to mix. I seriously do not recommend this drink, not even as a joke to impress your friends. But if you must insist, I've included the recipe below.

From NBC's The Office
3 parts sake
1 part eggnog

agree.. I Mix equal parts in a cocktail mixer w/ice --> then poured on the rocks into a lowball glass. those photos look more like an elementary school paper paste project than a cocktail...and the mix is wrong IMO

You are crazy! I am drinking a nogasaki right now and it is awesome! For anyone who wants to try this we're using Momokawa Sake and Mountain Dairy Egg Nog from Ralphs. :)

Aww, Yum :( So sorry it sucks! Hopefully you have enough egg nog to just add in some rum! Thanks for sacrificing for the rest of us.
