Reasons not to drink eggnog: too heavy, too fattening, too scary (raw eggs). But contributor Camper English found a pretty good substitute, the Chai Rum Elixir at San Francisco’s Medjool restaurant. We’ve adapted it a bit to suit our tastes, and here present the Medjool-inspired Chai Rum Not-Nog.

  • 2 cups crushed ice
  • 4 ounces vanilla chai concentrate, such as Oregon Chai
  • 1 ounce heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 ounces spiced rum, such as Captain Morgan
  1. Fill a tall collins glass with ice. Add the spiced rum, then the vanilla chai. Stir in the heavy cream, and serve.
