Tips For Making These Eggnog Holiday Drinks
- Chill Your Eggnog. If you are making your own eggnog, let it chill in the fridge for at least a couple hours, or overnight before making the drinks below.
- Garnish your drink. Garnish for Christmas drinks include whipped cream (try this brown sugar whipped cream), sprinkles or chocolate shavings. A dash of nutmeg or cinnamon pairs well with eggnog.
- Make vegan eggnog. For guests that are vegan or dairy free, use a vegan eggnog for these recipes instead.
- Storing Eggnog: Store homemade eggnog in an airtight container in the fridge for 2 to 3 days. Store bought eggnog will last 5 to 7 days in the fridge once opened.
