This homemade eggnog is the best tasting and most easy to make recipe! A holiday recipe that will easily become a family tradition at your household!
I never used to like eggnog until one year in college my sweet fiancé made me homemade eggnog with a family recipe passed down from his mom. Since then I have been a huge fan but am really picky and have a hard time finding one I like. I don’t want it too thick, too egg-y tasting, too cinnamon-y tasting…and the list goes on. I know, I’m hard to please! Ha! However, this is the best tasting and easy to make homemade eggnog. A holiday recipe that will easily become a family tradition at your household! Sip on it for breakfast with my Christmas Casserole or have it later in the day with Melting Snowman Cookies! or Snowball Cookies (aka Mexican wedding cookies)
