Ask yourself this question and answer honestly: do you know anyone that actually likes eggnog? I mean, sure it always shows up at holiday parties, but is anyone actually requesting it? If I’m being completely honest, I’m not going to turn down a cup of eggnog if someone offers it to me but the idea of slurping down a drink made of raw eggs and alcohol still gives me pause. If eggnog has survived this long as a holiday tradition then it must have supporters and Costco seems to be aiming to convert some of the eggnog doubters of the world with a boozy new product.
Not your average eggnog
Costco’s ‘Kirkland Signature Eggnog Wine Cocktail’ clocks in at a whopping 13.9% alcohol by volume! That’s stout enough to make listening to your Uncle Gary repeat the story of that time he supposedly met Jon Voight at a Pizza Hut buffet seem EXTREMELY entertaining.
The stout eggnog was first spotted on Instagram by the account @costcobuys with a post reading:
Costco is currently stocked up with 1.5-liter bottles of this powerful ‘nog so go scoop up a bottle or four and join the fight to make eggnog a little bit less of a divisive holiday drink!
