A Spiced Nod to Nog

A light version of egg nog, with spice notes from chai-infused gin and cardamom bitters, nuttiness from amontillado sherry and black walnut bitters, and a sweet roundness from Mr. Black and Demerara syrup. Everything is brightened with freshly grated nutmeg, orange bitters, and expressed orange peel oil.
