This post is a week or so overdue, but seeing as the weather in the Northwest is really starting to get cold now, I don’t think there’s any reason why we can’t continue to make this delicious drink well into January (as long as the store keeps carrying egg nog!)
This was so easy to make, I feel bad even taking credit for it….okay, no I don’t! I was happy to use up some random items I had left in the beverage department of my kitchen. 🙂
All I did was add a half shot of spiced rum to a half shot of Kahlua, then mix with a quarter cup of nonfat milk and a quarter cup of light egg nog (feel free to substitute coconut nog or almond milk nog if you like or have food allergies). I topped it with light whipping cream and a dash of cardamom – my official spice of the holidays.
The whole thing takes less than 3 minutes to make, and doing a batch for guests is both easy and pretty, making you seem like the hostess with the mostest!
Happy Holidays, and a very safe and prosperous New Year!
