  • Just one tip when preparing Caipirinha: remove that white part from the lemon because it makes the drink too bitter. Great video, made me want to try different variations at home:)

  • I had NOT realized you and Greg had collaborated. This is especially shameful because this is my second time watching this video.

    When we’re allowed out of lockup, I’d love to see you over on his show at some point.

  • Metal straws don’t help the environment they actually are worse than plastic straws just drink your streak without a straw is that simple

  • My two favorite men on the internet in one video? It truly is a great time to be alive! Love you both! Thank you for being the amazing inspirations that you are! Fan for life ��

  • I think if you put the measurements on the screen it would be an awesome video. Like when you show the final drink have the list in the top right or left. Also if to said all the measurements because I cant tell if you’re doing a 1 oz. or 1 1/2 oz.

  • 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.

  • I’m sad that I never tried alcoholic eggnog (remember the “WKRP in Cincinnati” episode where Johnny Fever took a whole bowl over to Jennifer’s place?). With only one kidney left (I’m a double cancer survivor) and limited to Tylenol and an opioid, NO BOOZE! Back in my racing days (sports cars), we kept ourselves well oiled at Party Time, so at one of our reunions somebody introduced me to a “Sombrero”: Creme de cacao (or kahlua) and chocolate milk served over tiny ice cubes. In my days on the ski slopes, I enjoyed hot buttered rum, though one bright Sunday I stood at the top of the headwall in 15 degree weather with a stiff breeze and told my lady friend, “This is a lot to go through for hot buttered rum.” After that, we had it in a living room.

  • Nice. “masterclass”, it isn’t overfilled glasses, part of drinks left in the mixing equipment, fruit& icehandling with bare hands…Just no.

  • I just down a bottle of rum and eat a whole nutmeg. That’s a real eggnog. You might not have egg but I can promise you that you will have a nog. Both in your head and in the ambulance latter on.

  • The quality and professionalism of a bartender is one of those things that really can make or break the whole experience. It’s not simply a price thing, you see cheap bars with great bartenders, and expensive bars with poor ones. Jeff seems top notch.

  • Im so offended y’all really put eggnog when we all know that coquito is so much better it’s Puerto Rican eggnog with coconut cinnamon and rum and it is also a holiday drink

  • Hey! Jeff the bartender here. FYI, Dutch Kills has opened a cocktails-to-go window in NYC during the shutdown. If you’re in the area, swing by for a drink! Your support means the world. Hope everyone’s staying safe. ❤️ All your comments are hilarious btw. As for how many drinks were consumed and by whom I’m taking the Fifth.

  • You should do a pangalacticgargleblaster from HGTTG (Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy) but the one from the book not the movie. I love your interpretations of food from
    Movies and shows and feel like you are the most qualified to recreate this crazy concoction

  • So what do y’all think they do with the drinks? It’d be a sin to pour them out… do you think they just have one person getting absolutely plastered behind the camera?

  • 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?

  • why did i only see this just now?! better late than never haha. this is super helpful for a wannabe like me; will definitely try them soon.

  • I’m kinda proud he’s using Topo Chico water, since it originated in my hometown of Monterrey, Mexico, in the area of Topo Chico (a small inactive volcano).
    On the other hand, I hated how he played with the pronunciation of Tequila and the hint of racism when explaining the “Mexican Firing Squad Special”. Me dieron ganas de patearlo en los Uncle Sams. Did not finish watching.

  • 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!

  • Thank you for introducing me to Greg! I’ve been on a binge since I finished binging all your videos! Both creators are incredible and you should definitely do more collabs!!

  • I would’ve liked to have the right amounts of all the ingredients mentioned. Anyone have a list?

    Other than that i absolutely love this!!!!!

  • I would take 0 ice on the first glass. I feel like that would hinder the flavors and dull it. I want it strong and rough. Like how I do my vodka and or any whiskey. Dull no ice. 3 shots plain. Then make a few drinks mixed with what I want.

  • Yo can anyone recommend a non-alcoholic beverage? I’m 20 so I can drink in Canada (where I live) but I’m always on prescribed medication so I feel ill immediately

    Edit: I didn’t watch the entirety of the video when I wrote this. I did now

  • These eggnog recipes are so complicated. Over here we just toss eggs, sweet condensed milk and vodka into a bowl, mix until incorporated, done. Sometimes they throw some fancy vanilla in it 😉

  • So. Glowwine, the greatest of all holiday drinks, is nowhere on this list.
    This is a sin great enough to have Krampus visit yall. And Krampusnacht was two weeks ago, I doubt he’d like the overworking.

  • 2:59 Babish has successfully smudged his kitchen. And he gets to use the leftover sage in a tasty cocktail! That’s multipurpose usage right there.

  • Ending with a clip from the fairly odd parents. What a way to go! I’m guessing it’s from the first Christmas special share Timmy wishes everyday was Christmas? That was an awesome episode!

  • I have a blight resistant chestnut tree in my yard, and have been brewing chestnut stout beer, just like our families would’ve around this time for years until the blight killed them all off in 1908

  • Mmm great recipes! However I’d suggest delivering a better vid of the drinks perhaps providing all drink measurements? Just a simple 3 second shot for me to screenshot? Nonetheless thanks for the drinks, cheers!

  • I’ve always preferred homemade eggnog with calvados, don’t know what that is? Its a type of apple flavored brandy. If you want a good recipe on how to make it, watch the Bonneville’s video on Christmas cocktails.
