If you had one sip of eggnog 10 years ago and proclaimed it disgusting, lemme finish. While real-deal eggnog is thick and rich, omitting the cream and eggs (yes, we get the irony) is actually the key to nailing this drink. These dairy-free nogs and nog-based eats are the quickest way to feel festive during the so-called most wonderful time of the year. Not feeling so holly-jolly this season? We love this blogger’s advice on how to get through the holidays: “It’s at the bottom of a glass filled with eggnog and straight up brandy. Drink up.”
Eggnog for breakfast? Yes please! Mix your favorite eggnog recipe into a pan of nutty steel-cut oats, maple syrup, and cinnamon. Cook until creamy, then serve with your favorite oatmeal toppings—and another glug of eggnog, obviously.
