Bottoms Up with Chocolate Egg Nog

A chocolatey twist on the classic holiday drink and similar in flavor to the liqueur Irish Cream: The Chocolate Egg Nog. Perfect for your holiday party.

How did it become December already?! By the time my head stops spinning and I put out my Christmas decorations, I know it will already be 2014! My husband is asking when we should go get our tree and I am asking for a few more weeks, that I know does not exist. So am I the only one who was bulldozed over that the calendar reads December?!

I know it is December because, well, Thanksgiving is over.

I know it is December because my neighbors have put up their Christmas lights.

I know it is December because my parents have already purchased the grandkids’ their gifts.

I know it is December because the weather turned chilly here in San Diego (um, below 60ºF).

And, I know it is December because I have an egg nog recipe to share with you!

As part of the Darling Dozen for Davidson’s Safest Choice Eggs™, I was asked to create an egg nog recipe. Just like deviled eggs, I am not a fan of egg nog. So, I knew immediately that I had to come up with an egg nog drink that I would like.

Now one thing that I do like, quite a lot actually, is chocolate. “Egg nog would definitely taste better if it has chocolate,” I mused to myself. And so, my Chocolate Egg Nog was concocted.

I’m not a huge fan of cinnamon and spice in my drinks. (Boy, do I sound picky?) I save those spices for my desserts. Feel free to add them if you must have a spiced egg nog.

This Chocolate Egg Nog reminded me of my other favorite libation, Irish Cream. YUM! Good stuff!

I added whiskey with some traditional brandy in my version. This has plenty of bite for me, a light weight, but my husband added more booze for his taste. No surprise here.

Disclosure: As I am part of the Darling Dozen, I did receive a stipend from Safest Choice Eggs™ to develop an egg nog recipe using their product. The story I have written is all true, and the opinions are truly mine. If I didn’t like it, I wouldn’t blog about it!
