My friend, Mike introduced me to this recipe & let’s just say I was instantly hooked.

I mean, what’s better than sitting by the fire, getting your buzz on with spiked, spicy cider?

Nothing.

Seriously, nothing.

Quick skinny tip: make sure you’re using an all natural/organic apple juice that’s not from concentrate. FYI: concentrate sucks ass. There’s absolutely nothing good about it. If it’s in your fridge, do yourself a favor & throw it away.

Trust me.

Ok- now go deck the halls while you’re sipping this amaze spiked, skinny dime.¬†

Spiked Soy Eggnog

Silk soy spiked egg nog with whiskey by female fitness blogger from Southern California

‘Tis the season for eggnog…however, the drink is definitely an acquired taste. When I was young, I despised it, but now I enjoy its frothy dense texture with a little bit of cinnamon [ I especially like it when it's spiked! ]. This particular batch was an experiment for my girlfriend, Lauren’s upcoming Christmas party. It beat out all of the other spiked drinks I tasted-tested by a long shot.

Spiked Soy Eggnog

1 cup Silk Soy Eggnog

1 ounce whiskey [ Bulliet or Maker's Mark ]

1 dash of cinnamon

Heat eggnog on simmering [ LOW! ] heat. Add eggnog to glass. Add whiskey and sprinkle a dash of cinnamon. Turn on the holiday music, light a fire & enjoy a nice buzz.

Homemade Cinnamon Spice Potpourri

[ Potpourri simmering on the stove ]

There’s something to be said about the phrase “home for the holidays.” This homemade potpourri [ created by my step-mom, Julie ] is constantly brewing at my parents’ house during the holiday season. Its spicy essence creates a warm feeling of sensory memory. It immediately transforms the ambience to a Thanksgiving & Christmas feeling. The best part? No calories- the smell of festive spirit is enough to alleviate the temptation of baked goods.
