Tis The Season for a Delicious Eggnog Virgin Drink Recipe!

The holidays wouldn't be complete without eggnog, right? We have a delicious eggnog virgin drink that is just perfect for the kids (and non-drinking adults!) at your holiday parties!

The holidays wouldn’t be complete without eggnog, right? It’s kind of a staple of the season! Today, we’re sharing a delicious eggnog virgin drink that is just perfect for the kids (and non-drinking adults!) at your holiday parties! Did you know that, according to one theory about the origins of the drink, once upon a time, only aristocrats used to drink eggnog because the ingredients were so expensive? Thankfully, today it’s a different story. Eggs are relatively cheap (they went up in price for a while, but seem to be going back down now in my area!) and most of us have the majority of the other ingredients in our pantry or fridge. Check out this easy eggnog virgin drink recipe, then print out the recipe card for later!

One quick tip before I let you run off to make your own eggnog virgin drink: if you’re not all that adept at separating egg yolks (I’m definitely not!), you can get a handy egg separator tool that will make it a breeze. Seriously, it’s awesome, such a lifesaver in the kitchen!

  1. I love all things Christmas, but miss out because I don’t drink alcohol. So excited to join in on the festivities with this one.

  2. What an interesting way to make up some eggnog in a special drink. My youngest loves egg nog .. not so much do I. I will make something like this for the household members that enjoy eggnog though I think!

  3. Jeanine @ sixtimemommy.com

    My husband is a huge eggnog freak so this would be perfect for him! I am constantly buying him cartons at the store I’d much rather make it!

  4. That sounds really good. I love eggnog, but I’m not a big fan of getting too much booze into myself, especially around the holidays. I can’t wait to try this.

  5. Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle

    That sounds so yummy. I love eggnog. The best part of this is that because it’s virgin, I can drink even more of it!

  6. My husband is huge eggnog lover, so i know he would love this recipe. I only like it in moderation, a glass here and there but he could drink it all day everyday. These other drinks are great for the non eggnog lovers.
