I love everything Christmas, I mean I have got it BAD!

When the stores start selling eggnog every season, I get giddy. However, I am not so excited about all of the additives and processed junk that is in those pretty green and red cartons! Why not give homemade eggnog a try?

We get raw milk from a local farm and it has the most amazing thick cream on top. I just had to make it into eggnog! But, I like it thick…like drinking batter thick! So I decided to make this stuff really rich. You can always substitute milk for cream in this recipe if you don’t like it quite so creamy. Cheers!

For the nutmeg, I use this grater and a fresh nutmeg nut.

We drink ours out of these cute little moose mugs because National Lampoons Christmas Vacation just might be my FAVORITE movie of all time!!!
