spiked eggnog.

eggnog is not for everyone.

I didn’t even get up the nerve to try it until last christmas. and I didn’t love it, but I liked it. and during the holidays, I’ll have a glass. why not? but it will never be something I get a craving for. or so I thought.

sometimes all you need is a little love alcohol + whipped cream.

for all you eggnog skeptics out there, give these two remixed versions a try.

option 1 // spiced rum.

I love using sailor jerry’s. it’s smooth & has a caramel flavor to it that compliments the sweet of the eggnog perfectly.

option 2 // coffee liqueur.

or better, coffee liqueur made with tequila, patron xo cafe. it makes it taste like an eggnog latte. absolutely delicious.

after adding a shot of your preferred spirit, top with eggnog. [I use store-bought, less fuss].

All Things E Blog // LLinaBC.com

name, please: Erika Sevigny
from: Ermmm wellll… I grew up all over the Midwest (seriously, 5 states in 9 years) and would consider myself to be somewhat of a gipsy, but I spent my formative years in Bettendorf, Iowa and point to that community as “home.” I went to college at Drake University, so usually I just say that I’m from Iowa. Currently living in St. Louis, MO though.
blog: All Things E.
12 words: wordy, aspirational, occasionally funny, usually sarcastic, bubbly, bookish, celebratory, gushy, girly, goofy, uplifting (I hope).
biggest guilty pleasure: VAMPIRE DIARIES. Seriously, the extent of my love for the CW show is embarrassing. That, and the Bachelor (I wrote this post about the Bachelor and it remains one of my highest viewed posts lol).
perfect sunday: Getting up early. Having an hour or two to read and/or blog. Going to brunch. Time outside with friends/family (lately kickball has been in the mix on this). A lazy afternoon watching movies. Time to plan for the coming week. In bed with a book early-ish.  I’m wild, right?!
life motto: Oy. I’ll go with this: “Live loudly, love abundantly, create constantly.”
favorite dessert: Chocolate chip cookies. Hands down.
thank you erika!
head over to her blog & say “hello!”.

have the best tuesday.
