December can mean a few things: the holidays, snow, sitting by the fire and the gathering of family. But did you also know it’s the start of National Eggnog Month? I didn’t either! But, I can’t think of a better way to kick off the holiday season than with a glass of one of my favorite things to drink this time of year.
It’s hard to believe that some people have grown up without trying this classic holiday drink. But, for those of you that have never tried eggnog, this is the perfect time to give it a go! And for those of you who wait for December 1st to stock up, it’s time to purchase your holiday treat.
Yes, eggnog is known for being high in fat, sugar and cholesterol – and I hear ya – that’s concerning. But, by drinking it in moderation and by purchasing it from the right place, it can be a special treat for you to enjoy, guilt-free. That’s why with Mountain Dairy eggnog at Bishop’s Orchards you can enjoy farm fresh eggnog that really isn’t all that bad for you!
Since their start in 1871 (just like Bishop’s), the Stearns Family Farm has prioritized simple from-the-farm values for delivering high quality, great tasting milk your family can afford. The Stearns Family oversees Mountain Dairy’s farming and bottling so you can have the confidence to know what goes into your milk every step of the way.
So, now that you have your farm fresh eggnog and you know where it comes from, there’s so many ways to be creative with it – especially this time of the year. You could add nutmeg, cinnamon and even whipped cream for a little extra something. Or make an alcoholic drink out of it by adding brandy, rum, or whisky – whichever you prefer, go for it!
And how about those holiday desserts we all know and love? Get creative this year and add eggnog to them! From cookies, cream puffs, trifles and more, you can make all different kinds of holiday desserts from this creamy crowd favorite.
