Egg Nog

It was so fun to talk about vintage holiday cocktails and the annual Christmas Eve egg nog with Stephanie March and our friend Molly King from Arcs Value Village on the Weekly Dish Second Helping.

Each year on Christmas Eve, we have egg nog. The tradition started over forty years ago when my husband’s family would get together with neighbors and celebrate a traditional Christmas Eve with Swedish inspired food. The large crystal punch bowl would be at least half full with dainty crystal cups accompanying the bowl. Last year my daughter Ellie did a stellar job keeping the egg nog tradition alive with this yummy recipe.
