Nothing 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.
- 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!
Breakfast 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!
Eggnog French Toast

- With a fork, whisk the egg, eggnog, cinnamon and nutmeg in a bowl big enough for dipping.
