This makes a great Chrismas gift, or birthday gift. It is easy, and the taste is out of this world! I will never buy Cap'n Morgans again. This is definitely spicy, you can alter the amount of serranos to taste. The recipe is attributed to Robert Parzick.
My friend will only drink Chocolate Martinis. Her favorite is from Tony Roma's. We called the bartender who shared her recipe. This is different from everyone else's. I make this up and store it in a small drink container in the fridge and whenever my friend comes over it is ready to go.
Move over traditional hot cocoa on a cold winters night; you will have a love affair with this concoction. I had this at a Starbucks earlier this year; after fooling around with ingredients, this is the clone. A wonderful drink to curl up with on a chilly night; great for a bonfire or a holiday gathering as well.
I found this recipe in our local electric co-op magazine. I love to keep mixes like this fixed up so that there is always something for making those hot drinks on the spur of the moment. Besides, guest will think you are great when you serve them this. And if you are watching your caffine, it is just as good with decafinated coffee.
This is a very simple, but tasty punch. It is also fairly inexpensive, which is great when a large quantity is needed. You can changed the flavor of drink mix used in order to obtain a desired color of punch. I recommend freezing rings of pineapple juice or the punch for use in chilling in the punchbowl.
If you worry about uncooked eggs in Egg Nog, as I do, you might like to try this recipe. I found the original recipe on the American Egg Board website and have made a few changes to suit our tastes. This is the best cooked Egg Nog I have ever tried and made this way, will be free from salmonella bacteria. This recipe can be doubled easily. Cooking time includes "chilling" time.
Edited to add: Always remember to use fresh eggs. This eggnog will keep 4 days under refrigeration.
