Miss Janice's Naughty Egg Nog

Eggnog is an excellent choice for a nightcap with friends. It's an annual Christmas tradition going back to the 1600s. Eggnog is a descendant of a British drink call 'posset', which contained eggs, milk, and ale. It may also be spiked with wine, brandy, and my favorite choice...rum!

Here I am wearing my latest apron find...perfect for serving eggnog! It's a tartain plaid apron I found at where else???--HomeGoods y'all! I love it:)


I always offer my guests a 'Nice Eggnog' {soy nog and nutmeg}--it's actually very tasty and lactose-free, cholesterol-free, and contains no saturated fat. Now, my 'Naughty Eggnog' is just that--quite naughty, but very popular!

I set up the Secretary to serve my 'Naughty Eggnog'...

The tasty 'Eggnog Cookies' are from Trader Joe's!!! Totally delish:)

Miss Janice's 'Naughty Eggnog' served in mint julep cups...

Recipe for Miss Janice's Naughty Eggnog:
1 quart eggnog (from grocers)
1/2 pint whipping cream
Desired amount of rum--I use one cup--I mentioned it was naughty, right?
1/4 tsp. nutmeg, plus extra for garnishing
Whip eggnog and whipping cream until thick. Add white rum to taste. Stir and pour into mint julep cups and garnish with nutmeg.

Ho Ho Ho y'all! Hope you are all having a wonderful Christmas season!!!
