No need to wait for eggnog at the store. Get that Christmas feeling all year with Eggnog French Raisin Toast.

One of my favorite things about the Christmas season is eggnog. Spane and I love eggnog. I like mine with a little Jack Daniels, Spane likes his plain. If we have any left, I make French Toast with it. Well, it’s July now, and no hope of going to the market and getting eggnog.

What do you do when there is no eggnog at the store? You make your own. Some eggnog tastes strange – last year I wound up giving one I didn’t like to an unsuspecting neighbor – they liked it, so no harm done. Based on what I made today, I’m confident that this Christmas, I’ll be making my own eggnog. I have a friend who raises chickens, and always has fresh eggs – he even has a big orange chicken that I am waiting to get old – I’ve named her Coq au Vin (seriously).

Update: 2021 – Coq au Vin passed peacefully in her sleep and never made it to my pot.

But, I was able to make eggnog that I really liked. If you like eggnog, but don’t like it being thick and sticking to your tongue seemingly forever, you might like this eggnog.
