The Diggle Nog! achievement states:

Diggle Nog! - Make some Diggle Nog. Who doesn't love a nice cold glass of Diggle Nog?

Since I've never played this game, I have no idea what to do to get it. What is the fastest/easiest way of doing it?

If you have the game, you can look up the crafting recipe for it; they're all stored in xml files in a subfolder off of the main game folder. Just do a text search for "diggle nog" in crafts.xml IIRC (I would do it myself but I'm not at my home computer). –  Tacroy Dec 20 '11 at 18:24

This took me about 20 minutes of play to achieve (although I've played the game plenty before, so know how it all works), so it should be fairly straight forward to achieve even if you're new to the game.

If you look at the wiki (or the XML file, or the in-game crafting menu) you will see that Diggle Nog can be crafted using a Porta-Still and combination of Aqua Vitae, a Diggle Egg and some Grog.

Therefore, to get the achievement you need to find all three craft items and a Porta-Still to combine them with. Craft them together and that's your achievement.

So, to minimize the time to get this achievement I'd highly recommend starting with the Alchemy skill so that you start with some Aqua Vitae (which will probably be in your quick bar, not your inventory) and a Porta-Still. You'll then need to find the other two items yourself, but they're fairly common items that you should be able to find somewhere on the first level.

Keep on the lookout for Drink Machines:

If you take Burglary as a skill, you can steal random liquor from drink machines, which may speed up your acquisition of the Grog. Otherwise, check each one you find to see if they're selling any.

Diggle Eggs are found frequently in Diggle Nests, which are small rooms containing a couple of Diggles and usually nests filled with eggs:

Let me add something: Aqua Vitae can be crafted by distilling most alcoholic drinks in the still. No matter how many times I started as Alchemist, I never got Aqua Vitae from the off. You'll need to buy some alcohol and distill it. –  user16787 Dec 20 '11 at 21:53

@yx.: Did you check your quick-use bar-thing on the bottom left? That's where mine was. –  Ullallulloo Dec 21 '11 at 0:30

I got the achievement after finding a Diggle egg in a food vendor, so make sure you check those as well. –  Tacroy Dec 22 '11 at 18:47
