Homemade Amaretto Eggnog

20171201_182058Folks, this little festive cocktail is so delicious.  Of course, you can leave out the spirits.  What I like about the amaretto is that it isn’t as potent as whiskey or rum so it doesn’t go to my head!  And the flavors of the amaretto meld marvelously with the fresh, frothy eggnog.  Leave Santa a little of this with his cookies and he’ll be nice and warm flitting around the world.

In a blender combine well:

2 1/2 cups of fresh milk

3 farm fresh eggs

1/2 cup of sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon cinnamon

Pour 2 ounces of amaretto over ice in a high ball and add a 1/2 cup (or to taste) eggnog.  Best enjoyed while listening to the Andy William’s Christmas album.  (My all time favorite.  Even named my son after him!) Cheers!
