“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.
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…
