I was a solid 'Nay' until a friend suggested I add a tablespoon of orange juice to the egg nog - it turned this nay-sayer into a believer.

I don't know what it is, but I can't find the right combination of eggnog and alcohol to please my palate. I like both individually, but when I try them together, it just doesn't seem right. A few days ago I tried some Appleton's in egg-nog. Didn't do it for me. So, I then tried some Smith & Cross. Still didn't do it. Maybe I was just hardwired as a youngster to like egg-nog by itself. Not sure. I'll try some of the suggestions here and see if I come up with something I like. It's certainly a worthy experiment.

Best use for eggnogg,
dip bread in it for making french toast.

French toast sounds fantastic. I've been wanting to make some holiday french toast using slices of Panettone. Using eggnog is brilliant, though. Maybe I'll combine the two. Hmmmm....

As much as I love rum, I often prefer bourbon in my egg nog. I also sometimes drink the egg nog plain, with a sipping-shot of rum or bourbon on the side.

Five years ago I posted a recipe for traditional New England eggnog. Since I'm making lots of the stuff this season I decided to go back and see what I had posted. It had a few errors, unfortunately, so I corrected them. Sorry it took me so long. Now that it's corrected, true eggnog aficionados will enjoy it.

Here is a link to the post located on Page 3 of this thread.

Last night in the cheap Christmas decor section of Target I saw a decorative sign that said OH OH OH. I have no idea what that has to do with Christmas, but y'know what does have to do with Christmas? Peppermint circus peanuts!



Circus peanuts are great cuz they're like eating something that's not meant to be eaten, memory foam or maybe some sort of sculpting material.Plus the original orange circus peanuts taste like baby aspirin and who doesn't love candy that tastes like medicine?

Now you can eat circus peanuts and feel Christmasy at the same time...Especially if you wash down the peppermint circus peanuts with an ice cold glass of egg nog.

Recipe for my Eggnog Cocktail:

Fill a cocktail shaker 1/4 full of ice
Add 8 ounces Eggnog
1 ounce Rhum Barbancourt (if you like it stronger add 2 ounces)
Shake very well

using the strainer top of the shaker
pore into a highball glass
top it off with a pinch of Nutmeg (get really fancy and add one whole cinnamon stick)

You end up with a frothy Rum & Eggnog milkshake cocktail
