The Drink Part of “Eat, Drink and be Merry”


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. Borden EggNog

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?
