Eggnog Mudslides are a delicious holiday twist on a classic cocktail! The perfect addition to all your holiday celebrations!
I was talking with my mom this morning about Christmas….and the brunch menu….because all of a sudden it’s time to start planning! Which is exciting, and scary, and a little bit stressful. But mostly exciting. Because CHRISTMAS!!! Are you ready?
I have to admit, when it comes to Christmas with my family, I really do have to brace myself. Not because of conflict or politics or overbearing parents….but because of ALL THE KIDS! When my family gets together, there are 12 kids total…and 8 of them are age 5 or under. Which makes for a LOT of noise, a LOT of chaos, and, of course, a LOT of fun. The kids play so well together, and I can guarantee they’re all beside themselves with excitement. Already!
But it definitely leaves you feeling like you need a break. And some peace and quiet. And….a drink! So this year I’m coming armed with something magical – these Eggnog Mudslides! The perfect after-dinner drink and definitely necessary after a day spent with 12 kids. I’ve always loved mudslides and I LOVE this eggnog twist! They’re sweet, creamy, and a little bit like dessert in a glass, with the added benefit of alcohol. Does it get any better than that?
Now, I know I’m not the only one. Whose family Christmas is chaotic and insane. So take it from me – pick up some vodka, kahlua, and eggnog on your way…..whip up some of these Eggnog Mudslides….and you’ll be everyone’s hero! Because holidays are meant to be spent with family, and we wouldn’t trade it for the world, but there comes a time when we have to take care of ourselves….am I right? And Eggnog Mudslides are the BEST way to do it.
