All through December, we're gobbling up homemade cookies and seasonal dinners and guzzling sweet Christmas cocktails. Perhaps the most beloved holiday staple, however, is eggnog. Try making your own this year with our simple recipe -- you can make it non-alcoholic or spruce it up with some bourbon. Either way, our eggnog is sure to make your spirits bright.
If you want alcoholic eggnog, try adding a splash of bourbon, rum, or brandy to the heavy cream and milk.
You can also try different garnishes. Add a cinnamon stick or two or a sprinkle of ground cinnamon to the nutmeg. Top your nog with whipped cream for even more sugary goodness.
If you need a shot of adrenaline, you can mix your eggnog with coffee. Just add your eggnog and some brewed coffee to a saucepan and cook over medium-low heat for a few minutes. Top with your favorite garnishes, and your caffeinated eggnog will be ready for consumption.
Whatever additions or garnishes you choose, your eggnog is sure to be the life of your next holiday party!
