I have a confession to make. Until Christmas last year, I had never tried eggnog – and even then, I only had a sip of my boyfriend’s. I was always curious about it, ever since watching The O.C and crushing on Seth Cohen hard and wishing he would celebrate Chrismukkah with me… Mmm. Woah, getting a little off track here.
(But seriously, who else loves him?)
Anywaaay, so this year, I decided to make my own eggnog. It was a weird experience, buying alcohol for cooking instead of with the intention of getting drunk – am I becoming an adult? *shudder*. However, the eggnog turned out to be well worth being reminded of my impending old age, so I’m going to share the recipe with you today!
Guys, you don’t understand how obsessed I am with these plastic glasses. I bought them from my local supermarket for $5 each, along with the ones I used to display the sugar dusted cranberries I made (check out that recipe if you haven’t yet!) and since that day I’ve been wanting to go back and get more, but I just haven’t gotten around to it. They are my new favourite things to drink out of and I just can’t get over them. I love them so much I could cry. (Overly dramatic? Nah.)
There you have it. I know it seems a little egotistical to title this recipe “Best Holiday Eggnog” when I’ve only ever had one sip of any other recipe… but until I’m proven wrong, I’m sticking with this name, thank you very much.
As always, let me know if you try this recipe & what you think of it! Tweet me pics, too!
What’s your favourite Christmas drink?
