The fact that eggnog is available only for a month or two out of the year is what makes it feel so special. So if you’re anything like us, you want to drink as much of the stuff as you can (within reason, of course!) before the holidays are over. With these 15 amazing eggnog recipes, there’s no way you’ll get bored with your favorite holiday drink. They’re thick, creamy and full of festive flavor. Enjoy!
Eggnog Recipes to Put You in the Holiday Spirit
If you’re craving a shake this season, try the Boozy Pumpkin Nog Shake on for size. It’s thick, creamy, boozy and pumpkin-y (is that a word?), so it will definitely hit the spot.
Just add peppermint ice cream and candy canes to your favorite nog to make this Peppermint Egg Nog Punch. Great party drink!
Or try this Candy Cane Bourbon Nog, which uses white chocolate liqueur and candy canes to create that extra Christmas-y flavor.
Coquito (or Puerto Rican eggnog) has a sweet coconut flavor with hints of cinnamon and vanilla to make an absolutely delicious holiday drink.
And here’s a different variation of Puerto Rican Eggnog that actually uses egg yolks to make the drink a little creamier and richer.
Add a splash of coffee liqueur to your favorite eggnog to make a Kahlua Egg Nog Cocktail everyone will rave about.
Eggnog Shooters are easy peasy. Use a homemade eggnog recipe or your favorite store-bought version and add whipped cream. To style the glasses, dip the rims in vanilla extract followed by edible glitter. Sprinkle a little more edible glitter on top, and you’re good to go.
Add yogurt and cardamom to your favorite nog for an Indian twist — Eggnog Lassi.
A hint of maple extract is what takes this Maple Bourbon Eggnog from good to great!
This Gingerbread Eggnog sounds like just the thing for me. It tastes like a spiked gingerbread cookie. Yum!
My second favorite on the list is probably this Orange Spice Eggnog, which uses orange liqueur, orange zest and warm spices to create the perfect holiday drink.
Eggnog Ice Cream Floats won’t warm you up, but they sure are fun to drink! The cinnamon ice cream and ginger ale really add a little something special.
Vanilla Mint Eggnog is pumped up with amaretto liqueur and mint schnapps to make it even tastier than the traditional nog.
And, finally, if you don’t drink alcohol or just want to make a kid-friendly version, this Old-Fashioned Non-Alcoholic Eggnog is the perfect solution. You’ll still get to enjoy the season’s most popular drink, but without the booze!
