This Egg Nog Punch adds a fun twist with the sparkle of carbonation to make a traditional holiday drink that everyone will enjoy. The creamy texture sprinkled with nutmeg makes a favorite classic egg nog punch that can be made ahead of time. Add your choice of rum or brandy before serving.

Tom and Jerry Batter
This is a wonderful recipe, and it is a Christmas tradition for my family. The drink is often mistaken for eggnog – but eggnog it is not! A Tom and Jerry is light and spicy, with a sweet foamy crown that forms when hot water is stirred into the batter. For the children in your family, just leave out the alcohol.
Mexican Egg Nog (Rompope)
Rompope, also known as Rompope de Santa Clara, is the Mexican version of the popular holiday egg nog. The word “rompope” is a derivation of the word “pope.” This is a favorite holiday drink in Mexico, and since Rompope is strong and sweet, it is meant to be sipped in small glasses.
Italian Affogato – Affogato al Cafe
Affogato means “drowned” in Italian or “drowned in coffee.” It is a dish of perfect, preferably smooth ice cream, drowning in a cup of espresso – like a decadent coffee float!
