So, I love the holiday season. I just do. Maybe it's because I'm not that far removed from the excitement of Santa. Maybe it's because I lived in California for four years and the only snow I got was when I came home to Kansas. Maybe.
Except that the real reason is I love egg nog (of the non alcoholic, store bought variety). And I don't see why egg nog has to be confined to the holidays. I like to drink it in my coffee every morning; when I go to coffeeshops I love egg nog lattes. I want to be able to order those year round!
Apparently my love takes after our beloved first president:
Our first President, George Washington, was quite a fan of eggnog and devised his own recipe that included rye whiskey, rum and sherry. It was reputed to be a stiff drink that only the most courageous were willing to try.Yum!
