Pumpkin Spice Eggnog

Pumpkin Spice Eggnog

I love a good glass of eggnog once a season. Calorically speaking it is basically like drinking a glass of melted ice cream with lots more flavor. What’s not to love? This year my daughter and I have been having fun trying new flavors of eggnog (virgin, of course) and this pumpkin spice variety was a recent hit.

It actually was super simple to make and we had a blast drinking it as a mid-afternoon snack. I even went so far as to use real eggs because I love the way they taste. They really help make the eggnog super silky and rich. I don’t worry about salmonella because I use Davidson’s Safest Choice® Eggs. They are pasteurized in an all-natural, gentle water bath pasteurization process to eliminate the risk of Salmonella. The majority of supermarket eggs are not pasteurized so this is a real help to know.

When making this eggnog for the adults you could easily had a splash of rum and bourbon depending on your preference. There is no right or wrong and it will make a delicious cocktail. Either way, this is just the thing to put you in the mood for the holiday season!
