There are two kinds of people in this world. People who like eggnog, and people I don't have any interest in being friends with.
Do you understand? If you don't like eggnog, we need to have a nice little chat about who hurt you. Eggnog is delicious and I will never understand why people don't like it. It's like dessert in a glass.
During the holiday season my family pours little baby glasses of eggnog and drinks them while we watch a movie or play board games.
This was a little ambitious in theory. But the execution was actually pretty simple. I mean, not as simple as just buying eggnog at the grocery store. But if you know how to boil water you'll be able to make eggnog.
I made a basic batch of eggnog, and then added some spices that you find in chai tea. Easy enough!
My very first job ever was at a loose leaf tea and spice store, where I learned a few things about chai. First of all, there's no specific recipe for chai tea. It's just black tea with added spices, but a lot of them have some more familiar notes. Feel free to use my blend of spices as a guideline and add more or less of each ingredient depending on what you like.
I'm pretty proud of this eggnog actually, the chai flavor is very full and rounds out the eggnog. A nice little twist on an old classic.
This recipe doesn't have any alcohol in it, and honestly I think it would be a little weird to mix some in. I can't imagine what kind of booze would go well, but feel free to try it out!
If you're not into all those fancy spices, you can leave them out and have a lovely plain eggnog.
