Holiday Russian

Holiday Russian via elisebakesNothing speaks to me during the holidays better than a comforting, creamy drink.  So I give you a festive way to ease your holiday stress – the Holiday Russian.  I’m betting there’s probably a name for a White Russian made with Eggnog, but I couldn’t really find anything other than ‘Eggnog Russian ‘ (okay, I didn’t look that hard) and that’s boring, so I’m dubbing it the Holiday Russian.Holiday Russian via elisebakes

  • 1 oz Caramel Vodka
  • 1 oz Kahlua
  • 2 oz Eggnog

Pour in a shaker with ice, shake, and pour in a small tumbler or rocks glass over ice.  Easy peasy!

Eggnog French Toast

Egg Nog French Toast via elisebakesBreakfast is my favorite meal of the day…well, I should say breakfast food is my favorite type of food because I have no shame in eating breakfast at any hour.  Honestly, I’m usually in such a zombie-like state in the morning that I just have a piece of fruit…it’s not until after a cup of coffee that I can actually get myself to cook something.  But, a midday egg burrito?  You betcha!  Pancakes for dinner? Yes, please!  Late Night Waffles? Say no more.

This eggnog French toast is festive and delicious!  I made is using homemade bread and it had a wonderful, rich flavor.  This serves one or two but you can double or triple the recipe as needed!
