Holiday time signifies various things, and things to do; cocktails and punches you only get once a year, roaring fires, trips to Mirror Lake Inn, homemade candy, cookies, gingerbread men, college bowl games, holiday parties, snow storms, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and on and on....if you aren't participating in at least 2 of the below items, you're missing out!
As for the punches; my favorite....Southern Comfort Punch, (I can't give this recipe out, it's top secret; there is a full bottle of booze in it, but you'd never know..just ask Stacie, it kicks her butt every year!)
Eggnog, (see below) a holiday favorite.....and this I will give you, so get your pen and paper out....
Here is Corey's Eggnog recipe:
12 egg yolks, 5 cloves, whole4 cups milk, 4 cups cream, 4 cups light rum, 1+ ¾ cups sugar,2+ ½ teaspoons vanilla essence, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, ground ¾ teaspoon nutmeg, ground. As far as what to do with all these ingredients...well that's up to you!
Mirror Lake Inn - A must if you've never been (Stacie loves it here) Wonderful during the holidays, great brunch, restaurants, and any "winter activity" you can think of...
College Bowl Games - These are very exciting(the 4-5 blog followers might not agree however!) If you're interested in the "Bowl Pool" let me know!
Trans-Siberian Orchestra - You must see this! Stacie and I go each year....we love it and recommend it to all of you(all 4-5 followers!)
