The holiday season is a very special time of year for many people in various cultures and traditions around the world. Everyone seems to have that one recipe which has been passed on from generation to generation. My personal Christmas favorite is Eggnog Liqueur. It was my grandmother’s recipe, and everyone in my family was always looking forward to it. This is not your average eggnog recipe, so be ready for the experience of a lifetime. Cheers to Goodness!™
