Eggnog is an essential part of the holidays and when you make it from scratch and then add a little warm and tasty booze to the mix…the holiday cheer factor goes up immensely!
This recipe comes from liquor.com and when we made this for our Christmas party last year, it was a massive hit!
Eggnog dates back to the late 1700’s, so there is no reason to stop enjoying it now!
