The recipe for
Ellis Island's Holiday Nog has been around since 1953, when the owner's grandfather, Frank Ellis, Sr., learned about it from a fellow passenger on a ship taking him from Italy to the United States. While the recipe remains a secret, you can still purchase a bottle for yourself for about $30 at Ellis Island and all 11 Village Pub locations in Southern Nevada. Only 2,800 bottles were produced this year, so get a bottle while you can!Photo by: Ellis Island
