Deep-fried eggnog shots signal the official start of the holiday season

Now that we've reached the only time of year when it's acceptable to drink eggnog, you've got to maximize your 'nog consumption. Don't just sip it straight up -- go in on some eggnog cheesecake, mix an eggnog chai, or pop a bunch of these deep-fried eggnog shots, brought to you by the always-reliable Oh, Bite It!

This recipe follows the usual process of soaking cubes of pound cake in booze before sending them to the deep fryer. But what sets it apart is the rum glaze drizzled over each shot, which allows you to knock out two essential holiday liquors in a single bite. Bring these to your first ugly sweater party of the season and you're sure to be more popular than Kris Kringle... that is, unless someone else brought deep-fried peppermint schnapps.
