🎁 We are toning down on the sweets on Day 5 as the kids give this traditional Christmas drink a shot. Hey guys its Evann here! I’m taking over for today and don’t worry, I haven’t gone with anything too healthy.
I’ve always been fascinated by eggnog, and when I found out that it had come from Britain in the medieval times, I knew I had to try it out. I also know many of the kids that want a sip of that eggnog, but haven’t reached that “drinking” age yet. So, we are making a kid-friendly eggnog without any alcohol just for them today.
I assure you, this year will definitely be different. All you kid’s out there can finally have a sip and enjoy eggnog with zero restrictions. Now eggnog is made up of milk and egg, but it also has lots of other flavourings like vanilla. If you feel another flavouring is needed, you can add cinnamon, cocoa etc. If this is your first-time making eggnog, remember it takes a lot of patience as it takes time to thicken and cool. I’m sure those who make big bowls of eggnog every year will find this an easy preparation that will definitely spike the enjoyment and holiday spirit in your child.
