Johns special EGG NOG drink

Here's a must for your next Christmas Party! Isn't that beautiful and festive? This is the first time I have posted an alcoholic beverage recipe on my blog. I like to try and keep things family friendly and all, but this special Holiday drink was one I couldn't keep to myself.

Remember a couple weeks ago Big D and I went to Chicago to stay with her sister? Well her sisters husband John, was suppose to fix us one of these yummy special drinks of his, but he fell asleep on the couch, and we couldn't rouse him from his deep slumber to make us a drinky. (They have a baby...he's allowed to crash on the too Harmony.)

Big D and I were obsessing over "the special drink" so she called up her brother-n-law got the recipe and we had a party so we could have one...or two. Well really Kenny and I just wanted to see our best pals before Christmas, so we could reminisce and have some yule tide cheer with them and all that jazz. But it sounded like a good excuse to make "the special drink".

This is what you will need. Heavy whipping cream, for whipping. Kahlua, Spiced Rum, low-fat want the real good stuff, and ground nutmeg. Everything in life is better with ground nutmeg on it. Do I hear an Amen sistah?!

I had to go buy Spiced Rum, there was nary a bit of spiced rum in my house. I made fun of Big D, for bringing over a plastic bottle of rum, and then well...I went and bought one too. It was 5 bucks cheaper for goodness sakes! See me squeezing the bottle of rum? Bet ya thought I was real strong for a minute. I wonder if they put the cheap stuff in plastic so.......oh never mind, this babble is going in the wrong direction. Ok I'll say it! So when you get schnockered and drop your bottle it just bounces, and you don't hafta cry in your special drink.

This would be my dusty bottle of Kalhua. It's been awhile ol' boy. Sorry bout that, I should probably get you down more often.

Fill blender 3/4 full with ice, add 4 shots of Spiced Rum and 4 shots of Kahlua, fill to the top blender line with egg nog. Blend until slushy. Pour into martini glasses. (Honestly any glass will do.) Top with a dollop of real whipped cream. (If you need help with that go here.) Then give a sprinkle with nutmeg and serve. This makes 6 drinks.

If you would prefer to make one at a time then it's 3/4 shot of each liquor, and 6 oz. of egg nog, pour over ice.

I'm warnin' you these are VERY, VERY, dangerous. You might just find yourself playing your friends kids guitar and singing the blues. Hypothetically speaking that is.

  1. So I will admit it: I've never made egg nog. I think this year, it would be the perfect time to bring egg nog into our Christmas season. :) This recipe sounds like a fun treat... and the times with friends, even better. Have a super weekend!!!

  2. Thanks for this! I bought Egg Nog this week, but had no idea what I was going to do with it...I put it in my coffee for starters. ;) I just knew it was time to give it a try...this looks yummy!

  3. This looks like a pretty festive drink, and I love eggnog. :)

    We just got your Christmas card in the mail, and it is SO cute!

  4. These are AMAZING! I'm making them today for Bryan's family...we are substituting vodka instead of spiced rum and it's just as yummy! Time to put my stretchy pants on to make room for these low fat drinks! :)

  6. We are so making these at my parents on Christmas Eve! Thanks to John for sharing the recipe and you Sheila for spreading the word to the masses! Merry Christmas.

  7. I'm reading this out loud to my hubby as he gets ready for bed and he's going to gather all the goodies for our special evening of gift wrapping. Shhhh, don't tell the kids, but we alway watch Chevy Chase Christmas Vacation while we wrap.

    look good and help with hair issues and problems.

    As far as medical treatment is concerned, it's often suggested to consult your doctor before any further proceeding. Soon after this, use curl lotion all more than your hair, and make use of mousse and squeeze this in your hair to that your curls seem flawless.

God gets all buddy-buddy with Satan and in fact hires Satan to cause our hero all sorts of misfortunes and calamities.

  11. This can be flight simulator version FS2002, FS2004 or the latest version of Flight Simulator,
    FSX. It is also a good practice to make sure that none of the climbers are more tired
    than the other. After February 27, The Sim Online servers
    were shut down and it is now known as EA land, old account holders can still come back of course, and its the same game.
    The history of diamond simulants starts with the history of real diamonds which have to be known and treasured before some enterprising person gets around to imitating them with a cheap substitute.
