EAT WELL AND BE WELL
This recipe was inspired by a non-alchoholic sangria I spied on a fantastic blog I often frequent – the Kitchn. I made a few subtle changes and swapped out the pomegranate juice for cranberry juice and traded an herbal tea for the black tea that’s called for. This drink is fun & festive for a gathering and suitable for both kids and adults.
I tasted the brew after it marinated overnight and found it to be pleasingly tart. However, some people may prefer a sweeter drink.
I fondly remember my grandmother making homemade eggnog. She used raw eggs, milk, cream and freshly grated nutmeg. I was ga ga for the stuff. Because I’d had the real deal as a kid, anytime I purchased a carton of the store bought stuff I was sorely disappointed. I imagine if I had grown up drinking the carton kind I would have loved that too – but to me it wasn’t grandma’s eggnog. I was delighted to discover that Strafford’s Eggnog tastes practically identical to Grandma Marion’s!
