1. Traditional Dark Rum Eggnog
This is a no heat required recipe that will work well for any kind of alcohol you decide to use, although this tutorial specifically highlights a dark rum. The best part about this recipe is that it will last a couple of weeks in your fridge. So, you can keep a pitcher in there to consume whenever you're feeling jolly.
2. Festive Bourbon Eggnog Recipe
This recipe highlights cooking the eggs instead of leaving them raw. Since you're using heat for this recipe, it results in a cozy, warm drink you can savor by the fireplace on a cold night with bae. I love the inclusion of vanilla bean, nutmeg, and cinnamon, which gives this beverage such a fresh taste.
3. Chocolate Eggnog With Spiced Rum
Eggnog is good enough all on its own, but adding chocolate into the mix gives you the exact same feeling you get when opening presents on Christmas morning. Chocolate and alcohol — now these are two of my very favorite things. I don't know about you guys, but this will probably be my go-to holiday drink going forward. You can serve this recipe hot or cold.
4. An Eggnog Cocktail
If you want to get fancy with your eggnog, you can always serve an eggnog cocktail. This recipe utilizes eggnog that's already been made. So, any lazy girl can make this one with some store-bought eggnog. Serve it up in a cool glass and you'll be ready for the Instagram.
5. Vegan Eggnog With Spiced Rum
This video tutorial has three different holiday drink recipes, but we're totally trying out the vegan eggnog. It looks delicious, right up to the vegan whipped cream on top. Since it's vegan, pretty much all of your friends can try this one, so no one is feeling left out of the holiday festivities.
6. Tequila Eggnog
Most of these recipes use rum for their choice of alcohol, but this is for the tequila lovers out there. Tequila in eggnog? Really? I know it might not be the first thought that comes to mind, but this eggnog recipe is just creamy and delicious enough that you'll instantly fall in love. If tequila is your go-to choice alcohol, then this is definitely the eggnog for you.
7. An Eggnog Martini
This is probably the eggnog that James Bond would drink, because it's in martini form. If it's good enough for 007, then it's certainly good enough for me to give it a try. The graham cracker rim is a fancy touch that will seriously impress all of your friends.
8. Peppermint Eggnog
If you want a very festive version of eggnog, you can try out this peppermint recipe. This tutorial is great for making a punch that you can serve for any holiday bash you're throwing, and anyone can sip as much as they want. I'm obsessed with the candy cane garnishes around the punch bowl. For real though, you know this is the eggnog that Santa enjoys on the reg.
