“And so I’m offering this simple phrase
Although it’s been said many times, many ways
Merry Christmas to you”
I hope your holiday season has begun on a beautiful and bright note. We’ve had a few snowfalls here in Northern Idaho. Each time it happens I feel like a kid all over again and wish for more. There’s something so magical about soft, sparkly December snow.
Today’s recipe is extra special! It’s homemade eggnog, minus the eggs and cream, but trust me it’s so divine you won’t miss them one bit. May I say, I enjoy this recipe much more than any store bought version of holiday eggnog. Fortunately, my husband and kids feel the same so I was told this recipe must be shared.
Although, to be perfectly honest I don’t drink a lot of eggnog by itself, which you can absolutely do it’s so good. For me, I personally LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it in my holiday coffee. Nothing makes it feel like the Christmas season like a splash of eggnog in your coffee, or even better yet a homemade eggnog latte!
Please give it a try, I urge you it only takes but a couple of minutes and very few ingredients, and I think you’ll find it so much better than anything in a carton. To go all out, sprinkle the top with some freshly grated nutmeg. It’s worth doing. The scent will put a huge grin on your face, I’m sure…
