It’s all about the eggnog in this house. The girls weren’t too fond of the eggnog just, but they did enjoy the eggnog cookies. I made a batch to take to the preschool performance and they were so excited and proud to share homemade goodies with their classmates. When I was tasked with sharing a holiday beverage for this week’s Fall Fest, I knew it was going to feature eggnog. Since I’ve recently become coffee-crazed, I figured an eggnog latte was the natural progression. Everyone has an eggnog latte recipe, though, so I added some extra sweetness and spice to mine with a homemade, spiced-up, maple simple syrup. Yeahhhhhh. You can’t be grumpy when the scents of cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg are filling up your kitchen. So wake up with some Christmas cheer… the non-alcoholic kind, and make yourself some yummy simple syrup to keep on hand through the holiday season. Enjoy!
