Here at Organic Life, we love us some eggnog. (But not just any eggnog—see which organic brand won our taste test.) The problem we encounter, however, is that after having one or two servings of this ultra-rich holiday drink, the carton often remains half-full in the back of the fridge until it goes bad—after all, a little eggnog goes a long way, and it’s not exactly the type of thing you crave on a daily basis.
But maybe that’s because we’ve been consuming it all wrong. Hear us out: Eggnog, while delicious straight up or with a splash of whiskey, has major untapped potential as an ingredient—some people actually use it in French toast recipes to up the flavor. (Here’s how to make your own eggnog.)
So recently, we headed to the kitchen with a carton of our favorite eggnog, blared some Christmas tunes, and experimented with a few simple, unexpected, and totally delicious eggnog creations of our own that make it insanely easy to finish up every last drop.
Here, 4 drool-worthy ways to upgrade your eggnog this holiday season.
