Holiday Drink Recipes

Eggnog Alexanders are perfect for holiday entertaining or just relaxing by the fire.  This drink recipe only has THREE ingredients and with a quick whirl in the blender you will be serving up a creamy dreamy eggnog drink in no time.

I used purchased eggnog for this recipe.  Eggnog or egg nog (either is correct) is a sweetened dairy-based drink that is traditionally made with milk or cream, sugar and whipped eggs.  The whipped eggs give the eggnog it’s frothy texture.  Vanilla is also a common flavoring.  Liquors such as Brandy, rum,whisky,bourbon or vodka are often added to the eggnog.  I add Bourbon to my Eggnog Alexanders for a festive drink.  However, if you do not want an alcoholic drink, feel free to omit the Brandy.  Just mix the eggnog and ice cream in the blender and top with a sprinkling of ground nutmeg and you will have a wonderful holiday drink!

The typical garnish for eggnog or eggnog recipes such as the Eggnog Alexander is a sprinkling of ground cinnamon or ground nutmeg.

Regular eggnog is high in fat and high in cholesterol but there are low-fat varieties available on the market.
