It’s good to gild the lily every now and again. So when we were left with a gallon of surplus eggnog while recipe-testing our Best Eggnog, we decided to update classic cheescake by adding a gingersnap crust and a good slug of nog.
Beverage pairing: Wenzel Riesling Beerenauslese, Germany. Eggnog is filled with spice, sweetness, and a little sharpness, just like a good late-harvest German Riesling. But the amazing thing about the sweet styles of Riesling is their amazing acidity, which will add a refreshing zing to this rich cheesecake.
