Just in time for a holiday season full of indulgence and gluttony, meet the ultimate holiday eggnog. After all, what’s a little cold weather without a nice holiday drink to keep you feeling festive for the rest of the month. When you hear eggnog it is mostly associated with the holidays and that’s why we think it is the ultimate holiday drink! And while it’s easy to run down to the store and pick up a pre-packaged carton of the stuff, it’s more meaningful and more tasty to make your own.
For the icing on the cake or rather should we say the foam on the drink, make sure you use the appropriate glassware to serve your eggnog and make sure you are serving in style. We like to think it’s not just about what you’re serving, but more how you’re serving it and the presentation. We suggest using our Basic Stemless glasses or Basic Irish Coffee Mug for an extra touch of style!
Pull out your glasses and start mixing up this drink for guests and/or family. Cheers!
12 eggs, separated
