I watched a woman make egg nog on the cooking channel at the weekend and I thought "you can't be serious!" - it's alcoholic custard mixed with whipped cream!!!

Pear Drop Vodka

1 bottle of vodka
2 packets of pear drops (may be more depending on size of the packets)

Remove about one measure of vodka and replace with pear drops (can use one colour and have another bottle going with the other colour).
Once the pear drops have dissolved over a couple of days add some more until no more dissolve. Usually leave about ten days between starting and when you may want to serve.

Serve in vodka shots as Pear Drop Vodka Liquors.

Alternative to Pear Drops are Lemon Sherbets and skittles.

Polish Apple Pie

Żubrówka vodka
Unfiltered apple juice
Sprinkle with nutmeg or cinnamon to taste.

Play around with measures but when right oh boy does it taste like apple pie that you can serve as an alternative to the real thing as a pudding on Christmas day.  I had 1/3 to 2/3 in a jug last time I made it.
