Eggnog is a holiday treat, and something I look forward to every Christmas. We make an alcohol-free eggnog that is divine, though the eggnog with alcohol is tasty too (we make both versions).
My grandmother has these silly moose mugs that remind me of the Griswald’s Christmas Vacation movie. She never saw the movie but found the moosemugs at a Christmas holiday store and picked them up for our winter beverages. Everytime she whips them out the whole family gets a kick out of them- they conjure up thoughts of ski lodges and hot chocolate and winter hats.
And our awesome Christmas Eggnog recipe:
