Dairy Free Spiked Eggnog – an updated twist on the classic holiday cocktail. The smooth almond milk nog combined with festive liquors makes this a much-needed dairy freeredoux.
There are a few recent product discoveries that I have made while spinning my wheels at the market testing out new Whole 30 approved ingredients. (See more about my Whole 30 experiments here – and no, this cocktail is not Whole 30 Approved)
One of the brands I absolutely fell in love with is Califia Farms. Their toasted coconut almond milk is my go to now. I use it over my cereal and in my coffee. Aside from baking (and sometimes even when I’m living life on the edge), it has replaced typical milk for me. It’s a life changing kind of good.
So, when I spotting their dairy free Holiday Nog, made from almond milk, I said to hell with it and tossed it in the cart. Call it a festive splurge (so much for budgeting).
I knew I wanted to update a timeless holiday classic – eggnog – with a lighter dairy free version. Instead of just pouring more rum into a mix (not that I haven’t done that a time or two), I routed out some flavors to really punch this one up. Hazelnut liquor, a hint of coffee from the Kahlua, and of course, the spice of traditional rum all blend together smoothly for this Dairy-Free Spiked Eggnog.
Be sure to check the Cocktail Archives for some more festive holiday libations.
No matter how you make your eggnog or dairy free nog, there is something magical about the leftovers. That smooth semi-sweet flavor can add that special something when used in other recipes. Here are some of my favorites!
