ROBERT SIEGEL, HOST:
Now a brief nod to nog, eggnog, the holiday drink some people love to hate.
MARIA DEL MAR SACASA: Do you politely refuse and make up a dairy allergy or say you're not drinking? Or are you wondering this woman has completely lost it, and is she trying to poison me?
SIEGEL: That's Maria del Mar Sacasa, author of "Winter Cocktails." Earlier this week, she gave us her eggnog recipe to win over those haters, a freshly mixed pumpkin eggnog.
SACASA: This tastes like melted ice cream. It does; I promise.
