(Update Dec. 17:  Don’t have a car to get to Total Wine? Here’s your chance to score a bottle if you’re around Capitol Hill. Sun Liquor will be selling its eggnog today, starting at 4 p.m. at its distillery at 512 E.Pike St. for $45. It usually sells out.)

Rain or sleet, doesn’t matter. Every Christmas, hundreds of folks line up in front of Sun Liquor for the bar’s famous eggnog.

Now you don’t have to wait in the cold. Sun Liquor’s famous 30-day aged eggnog is available, starting Dec. 12 at Total Wine branches in Seattle, Bellevue, Lynnwood and Tukwila.

It’s sold in a liter milk bottle for $50 and is expected to sell out by next week.  If that’s too pricey,  make your own by watching our how-to video, featuring Sun Liquor barman Erik Chapman whipping up his own batch.

Erik Chapman of Sun Liquor Distillery in Capitol Hill reveals the holiday recipe for their famous Aged Egg Nog.

Here’s why Sun Liquor’s eggnog tastes better than your grandma’s recipe;  It’s aged in the fridge for a month, allowing time for the booze to break down the proteins. The result is a less fluffy concoction that goes down easy.

Maybe you don’t have the patience or the room in the fridge to age the nog. We here at AYCE blog have got you covered. Our happy hour this week mentions another famous eggnog that all the cool kids are drinking now. It’s  Morganthaler’s eggnog, named after the Portland bartender who came up with this variation with sherry and tequila. It’s crazy delicious.
