Christmas is all about tradition and spending time with friends and family but for this girl (ahem, woman), it’s not Christmas unless I get to enjoy my Borden Eggnog.
Yes, it’s in a can, but if you like eggnog, it’s the yummiest, creamiest, most-bad-for-you-on-the-planet goodness! It’s great on its own, but in coffee? Wow.
Someone is playing a cruel joke on me though because I can’t find it anywhere. I searched online and it looks like it was recently acquired by another company, but I haven’t seen it anywhere and all of the grocery store / beverage store clerks scratch their heads when I ask about it.
I’ve tried several other brands and some come close, but there’s always something wrong with them. They are either too sweet, or too thick or too…something.
However, I did find another beverage to tide me over. I talked about it on Facebook recently.
Someone brought a bottle of this to the book club holiday meeting and let me tell you, it was quite a hit. ChocoVine is Cabernet and Dutch Chocolate and reminiscent of Baileys. Served over ice, this was a big hit. Lots of places carry it which makes it almost too easy for me to enjoy. Who comes up with this stuff? It’s sinful, but so so good and I don’t even like sweets!
Some people crave their hot apple ciders, others their Salted Caramel Hot Chocs from Starbucks. What’s your poison?
