To tell you the truth I have never tasted the regular Egg Nog haha, some people say that Advocaat (snowballs) is similar to it?? But I would love to buy that Halloween Egg Nog! :D

Hehe! me neither, but like you I think it is like snowballs. I always think of childhood Christmases as it was the only time I was allowed a "small drink" with the adults, advocar, lemonade and lime juice....I used to love it!

I've heard of pumpkin pie spice but not extract. Wonder if it's made from the spice.

I really like the idea of a pumpkin pie egg nog. I assume it's orange in color. I bet it would be nice to serve in little shooters. Maybe sprinkled on top with a little black decorating sugar to make it black and orange.

Dunno about Pumpkin extract Meeps, I've never seen that..
As for advocaat, it's quite a traditional drink over here at Christmas time.
Most kids first experience with an alchoholic drink is to be allowed a "snowball"
(Advocaat & Lemonade) at Christmas.

One of my earliest Christmas memories is watching dear Mother with a glass of Warninks aadvocaat in one hand whilst the other was thrust deep into the nether regions of a huge, dead bird. :):)
