How to drink eggnog – our favorite ways to enjoy this classic holiday beveragePosted on December 9th, 2019 by Jessica Murray
Eggnog is the signature drink of the holiday season! Now that we’ve received more Prairie Farms Eggnog, our mouths are watering at the many ways to drink it. Some people like it plain and cold out of the jug, and others like it spiked with something rum, cognac, or whiskey.
Below (in no particular order) are some ideas for serving and drinking eggnog… and don’t forget to buy a quart or two of Prairie Farms Egg Nog in our dairy section!
- 1 cup of cold eggnog, optionally with 1/2 – 1 full tablespoon of your favorite rum (available behind our customer service counter), with whipped cream on top.
- Heat 1 cup of eggnog mixed with rum up for about 30 seconds in the microwave, add whipped cream and cinnamon on top. This is a classic single serving.
- Spice up eggnog with bourbon, Grand Marnier, vanilla liquor, or cognac… or try all three of these liquors together for a deeply flavored, complex, decadent, very alcoholic holiday beverage (it will be about 20 proof – find the full recipe on TheSpruceEats here).
Prairie Farms provided this holiday cocktail recipe, which serves 6 and is perfect for entertaining or drinking slowly over the weekend. Just mix all the ingredients together in a pitcher, optionally serve over ice (or heat up), and garnish with cinnamon sticks, cocoa and nutmeg, or miniature candy canes!
- 1 Cup Ice
- 1 Quart Prairie Farms Seasonal Milks: Egg Nog, Holiday Custard, Pumpkin Spice, Or Chocolate Mint
