|Eggnog ~ If I want the whole fat, real deal Eggnog, I'll have a glass & savor it. But to indulge in it much more frequently, I really wanted to find a quick, low cal version of one of my favorite holiday drinks. Here is an interesting recipe I found online. I tweaked it a bit by using a little Butterscotch pudding, along with the Vanilla. Ooh la la! ~ http://www.grouprecipes.com/78921/creamy-eggless-eggnog.html|
I think there is something about Christmastime that makes drinking holiday 'froufrou' beverages almost mandatory. Maybe, it's the sense of sharing a Christmas tradition with past generations, or maybe it's the acceptance of wanton, increased calorie consumption. Either way, I'm there. :)
|Glogg ~ This will keep you going through the cold nights of winter. My Swedish ancestors were on to something, Swedes sure know how to party. Here's a little history on Glogg & how to drink like a Viking. Skal! ~ http://wineintro.com/mulled/glogg.html ~ http://wineintro.com/mulled/vodka.html|
Whatever it is, I wholeheartedly jump on the holiday
|Brandy Milk Punch ~ This is one of my favorite drinks to make at home. It is rich tasting , without being too sweet or too heavy. I drink this one year round. You can use other liquors, but brandy is my favorite for this drink. Make mine shaken, not stirred. :) ~ http://www.neworleansonline.com/neworleans/cuisine/drinks/brandymilkpunch.html ~ Here is another spin ~ http://smittenkitchen.com/2010/12/milk-punch/|
So, what is your favorite holiday cocktail?
