Mark the start of the party season and get the good times flowing with a seasonal favourite. This cinnamon eggnog recipe is the perfect antidote to a long day Christmas shopping.

Put away those store-bought cartons, we all know homemade eggnog tastes ten times as special. With only wholesome ingredients calling for a mere ten minutes over the stove, this easy cinnamon eggnog recipe is a surefire winner. It’s as simple as combining milk, cream, eggs and sugar in a pan and spicing with earthy cinnamon, smooth vanilla and sweet nutmeg. Add a naughty tipple for an indulgent winter treat that’ll leave you feeling all warm and fuzzy inside.
Match your deliciously decadent eggnog with a lighter treat on the side for your Christmas party. Why not whip up some delightfully simple Christmas Macaroons? They take just twenty minutes in the oven so they can cook while you’re mixing the drinks, and your guests will be presented with the freshest macaroons they’ve ever tasted. Just save an extra egg and sugar from your eggnog recipe and mix with ground almonds and a dash of cinnamon for a light, crunchy side set to impress.
More than just a fabulous Yuletide drink, this eggnog recipe can lend itself to a whole host of sweet surprises. Save a little eggnog for a special treat on Christmas morning, soaking bread in the sweet mixture before placing on the skillet for festive French toast. Add an extra dash of cinnamon or nutmeg for an extra festive flair. Feeling naughty? Use eggnog over wonderfully spicy bread and butter pudding for a deliciously different take on a traditional treat.
