Celebration Beer Nog

DSC04370Have you been wondering where I’ve been? Happily living life, spending time with Family, enjoying Christmas, enjoying friends, going to parties, and eating. Isn’t that how it is supposed to be?  I had no gumption to pick up a camera and document life, nor jot down recipes, nor look at recipes. All I wanted to do was live in the moment and be.  It was a good break indeed.

Thank you so much for being a friend and follower of BRK this last year, what an adventure it has been!  My friend Jen asked me what my resolutions were for the New Year. I don’t really get into all that, but I do re-evaluate life and try to set and achieve goals. I have a few that I will jot down, such as organizing BRK which seems to be a never-ending task, also I need to set some fitness goals since last year’s did not come true because of an injury. I’m thinking more paddle board races would be challenging.  I have a 17 year old trying to find his life purpose and his Dad and I are pleased to be able to help him with that. So I think praying more for my children will rank high this year.

What are some of your goals for the New Year?

It should be “drink more nog!”  Here is a twist on eggnog that is curiously delicious. Beer Nog. By adding a bit of stout to homemade eggnog, another layer of richness is enjoyed.  I have had eggnog in coffee, lattes, and with ginger ale, but this beer concoction is a first for me.  I have had Guinness with milk and in chocolate shakes, so why not Guinness and nog? I found the Beer Nog recipe on draftmag.com and adapted it to my tastes by using Guinness instead of an ale.  And definitely Bourbon!  Safest Choice Eggs are used with confidence in order to avoid salmonella or having to gently cook regular eggs.  Everything but the stout goes in the blender, then Bob’s your uncle you have a very unique nog that will have your guests guessing.  Give it a try for your New Year’s Celebration and all the other Holiday parties that continue on through January and let me know what you think.

    You have been missed! But, I can certainly understand wanting to live in the moment rather than document it… I’ve been going through that a lot in the last few months, so my blog gets updated more regularly after I’ve taken a bit of a break. Happy New Year!

    my boyfriend would probably lose his mind if i made this for him, as he’s an avid beer- and eggnog-lover. 🙂
