I am in the camp of eggnog lovers, in case you couldn’t tell. Eggnog is a superior drink that deserves a shelf-life longer than the holiday season. Unfortunately, I’ll have to settle and take advantage of the delicious drink now. In my own effort to justify stocking the house with gallons of eggnog each year, I’ve looked for more ways to enjoy the drink. Here are just a few recipes that prove eggnog’s versatility.
