‘Tis the season! Time to deck the halls and gear up for all of the Christmas festivities. I’ve got one of your festive holiday cocktails covered with this awesome Vanilla Mint Nog Cocktail!

I hope everyone had a happy and safe Thanksgiving… mine was full of turkey, stuffing, collards, corn, squash casserole, green beans, potatoes, deviled eggs and light rolls!
Mama put on a spread that was out of this world, just like she always does. It was our first holiday celebrating at their new little house that I love so much. It’s a quaint little place that just feels so cozy. I know she must have spent forever preparing this meal! My dad John passed out in his recliner afterwards and I was so tired from eating so much I was worried about making it back home!
The holidays are so special to me. I have so many great memories with family, friends and loved ones during the holiday season. No matter how busy we are throughout the year, we always make time to spend with each other during Thanksgiving and Christmas.
I guess my love for cooking and making cocktails stems from all the fun I’ve had at festivities with friends and family… if it wasn’t for the food and drinks, what would we do when we got together? Think about it! 🙂
This creamy vanilla-flavored nog from International Delight is pumped up with some amaretto liqueur and mint schnapps. The buttery flavor of the amaretto along with the mint and vanilla do something extraordinary to this already delicious nog! The taste captures the spirit of the season and will make you want to seriously deck the halls out (if you haven’t done so already!).
