Much like hot chocolate, the holidays just are not the same without a good cup of eggnog. And while you can buy it in a carton at your local grocery store, the best eggnog is homemade. By simply combining milk, egg yolks, spices, and rum, you have the perfect holiday drink. To make it more family friendly, you can take out the rum which won’t ruin the flavor. If you do plan on making this for your party, make sure you have it completed the day before so that it can chill overnight which really helps bring out all the spices. For more information on how to make homemade eggnog, view the recipe here.
