What goes into the Spiked Almond Milk Eggnog?
This easy eggnog is made with just 2 ingredients! Here's what you'll need:
- 1 gallon prepared almond nog, such as Almond Breeze.
- 12 oz Twice-Spiced Rum. To make the twice spiced rum, you'll infuse spiced rum with vanilla bean, cinnamon and star anise. This takes a bit of prep, as the rum needs to steep for 1 week to develop the flavors. If you are in a time crunch, you can just use your favorite spiced rum, and (optionally) add a splash of my Fall Spiced Simple Syrup to add a boost of extra flavor.
What kind of rum should I use?
You can prepare the Twice-Spiced Rum in advance of your holiday party, or you can use your favorite spiced rum for this recipe. If you are short on time and want to impart some extra spice to the drinks, add a touch of Fall Spiced Simple Syrup to each glass for an extra spicy boost!
Can I use regular eggnog for this recipe?
Yes! If you prefer classic eggnog to almond nog, you can use it instead. I would recommend combing the rum and nog right before serving if using classic eggnog. if using Almond Nog, you can prepare the mixture in a pitcher a day or 2 ahead.
Serving and garnishing the eggnog
To serve the eggnog, pour into your cocktail glass of choice, and garnish with cinnamon sticks, ground cinnamon and fresh grated nutmeg for a festive look, and spicy topping for the drinks!
How far ahead can I make the eggnog?
You can mix the Almond nog and Twice-Spiced Rum up to 2 days ahead, and store in a pitcher in the refrigerator. If using classic dairy eggnog, I recommend stirring the rum and nog together just before serving.
