Thirsty Thursday question of the day – do you love or hate Eggnog??
Egg Nog originated in Britain where it was originally made with brandy and called an “Egg Flip”. When it crossed the ocean to the Americas, rum became the addition of choice due to heavy taxes on brandy and whiskey. The name came from a combination of Egg and Grog, first Egg ‘n Grog and shortened to Egg Nog.

I am not a huge fan, but after looking at some of these pictures, I am thinking about making some this year (or at least some of the eggnog based recipes I found!)

Is it just me or do those cupcakes look amazing?

What is your favorite holiday drink? I am partial towards anything made with Champagne or Prosecco.
Cheers to a Happy Holiday!
