HOMEMADE EGG NOG

there are few things more indulgent or festive then homemade egg nog around the holidays. and it’s even better if it’s spiked. my mom has been making this recipe for years and it’s always a hit. don’t be scared off by your previous egg nog experiences, this is delicious and easy to make and tastes nothing like the store bought version. – joanie

    I am obsessed with eggnog, but have actually never made it myself! I think it’s about time I try it. I think I will make this over the weekend! Thanks so much for the recipe 🙂

    This is really getting me into the holiday spirit! The eggnog looks delicious and it’s one of my favorite Christmas indulgences.

    Oh my that looks amazing! I’m not the biggest fan of egg nog, but I do think everyone needs at least a little taste of it every year. Maybe I’ll give this recipe a try! Love your table cloth as well! xx

    what about the raw eggs? i thought that was considered a no no these days.

    i never thought of putting kahlua in eggnog! i always use jack daniel’s or bourbon…i just had it with Art in the Age SNAP, which is a gingersnap liquer, and DEFINITELY worth trying!
