This Bourbon Maple Eggnog is the perfect winter flavored cocktail. Add a little maple into your classic whiskey eggnog!


Eggnog is a surprisingly polarizing drink. According to a poll I did on Instagram though, most of you like it, so here we go with some eggnog recipes! I have to admit, it’s surprising to me, because of how much I love it. It is creamy, sweet, and lightly spiced! Try our Maple Mocktail, too!

It’s getting closer to Christmas! Less than a week away, but isn’t this just the best time of the year? I feel in a rush because there is so much to do. Although I do have to say the most stressful thing for me is gifts. You?

I squeak in under the wire, barely with getting all the presents bought. Sometimes I need a tipple when I am feeling super stressed this time of year!

I love a good glass of eggnog when wrapping presents, as well as just to feel in the holiday spirit during this crazy time! When drinking eggnog I try so hard to make it last, sipping slowly like a glass of wine. But, it never really works, it goes down far too easy.
