    2. A Dead Arcadia

      Hey babish I tried recreating your oleosaccarum at one point (I didn't spell that right) but I barely got any, and what I got didn't taste or smell very strong, any advice?

    3. deadpoil always sunny

      I had to make eggnog once I'm all set never need to do again. Just buy some and add booze. Not hood try and find a small label brand or a place that makes their own.

    4. Rebecca H.

      Does anyone know what brand of gin that was

    5. Lori B

      Heck yeah! Love both of these guys! 🤩😄

    8. MrAnon00

      I know it's a longshot, but I would love to see you try an Alaskan Polar Bear Heater from Nutty Professor. Probably won't be great, but it'd be neat to see your take on it!

      Could I omit the alcohol from the eggnog for the youngins?

    41. A Random Rock

      I don't drink. If I did, then I'd drink myself silly.

    48. Zack Ciesinski

      Hey Babish - awesome video! I made this 3 times over the holidays and my friends/family could not get enough. QQ - could you sous vide the eggs prior in order to not deal with heating to 160 degrees? I cooked the egg yolks accidentally a few times, so wondering if that would work instead. Thanks again! Keep it up - love all your stuff.

      "If you look at anything from this time period, everything gets garnished with fresh nutmeg." [Townsends loved that.]

    51. Sam Recktenwald

      Replace the water in the hoe buttered rum with apple cider, it’s delicious

    52. Christopher Sikes

      "Cut your finger just a little bit." And off the neighbors cat. Dude, how much force were you putting into that? You put the damn razor into a different time zone.

    53. Jean jean

      "Blood orange" Hes so pretentious. Shut up its effing red

    54. Fabian Schröter

      Two of the greatest channels combined. Just great

    55. Derek Beatty

      For the gin punch, if you were to not use booze, what would you use?

    56. Mohit Patel

      I love the matte cling wrap

    57. Chloe N

      At least 5 or 6 more absolutely 😂

    58. DJ Douglas

      ...I need to try a hot buttered Evan William's BIB. It already tastes like honey butter as is, and at 15-18 bucks, it's a phenomenal drink. Try it with a hot cider

    59. 2ToneDrip
