For many of you this is the best time of the year! It’s the time when you see a lot of your family and friends who you don’t normally see! The time when you get to eat A LOT of delicious food! And the time when all of the holiday favorites come out like pumpkin spice, gingerbread, and EGGNOG!
I have to admit: I never liked eggnog. My mom would always bring it home from the supermarket and every time I thought that it would somehow taste better than the last time I had it and every time I was unsurprisingly disappointed. The eggnog that you get from the store is extremely thick, rich, and overly sweet. I would always add about 1/2 cup of milk for every tablespoon of eggnog.
So when I asked on Instagram (if you don’t follow me, what are you waiting for!? @celestialbaking), what drinks you guys would like to see since I’ve only had one on my website since I started it , my cousin actually suggested eggnog. I honestly did not want to make it since I never liked it. But I am so glad that I gave it a shot!
This recipe is spicy, creamy, and luscious with a hint of gingerbread that I cannot get enough of! If you’ve had the eggnog from the store and you don’t like it, try this recipe! You’ll realize how great eggnog can be.
Also who decided to make a custard then drink it?? Seriously such a weird drink.
