Nothing says Christmas quite like eggnog. And if you don't like the drink straight up or you're looking for different ways to enjoy this popular holiday treat, here are 9 ways to get your share of eggnog this year.
1. Eggnog Muffins with Gingersnap Streusel
Confession: I actually don’t really like the stuff without it being “watered” down with milk. (Yay for MilkNog!) But, I love to bake with it, especially when your house fills with the sweet smell of nutmeg. These muffins stay tender and fresh the next day, lending themselves as great presents or additions to your next holiday gathering. For more recipes like this visit A Kitchen Addiction.
2. Eggnog Ice Cream
This ice cream is super easy to make. There are really only three steps. Mix the ingredients together, let your ice cream machine freeze it, eat it. I think everyone can handle the last step. For more recipes like this, visit A Kitchen Addiction.

3. Eggnog Streusel Bread
Cinnamon. nutmeg and a hint of cloves are infused throughout the bread and streusel to enhance the flavor of the eggnog and to give the flavor an added warmth. Have a slice for breakfast with your morning coffee or serve a couple of slices for dessert. Either way, you get to enjoy the flavors of the season while making sure to spend time with your family during the holidays. For more recipes like this, visit A Kitchen Addiction.

4. Pumpkin Eggnog Chai
The hint of pumpkin comes through the spices of the chai and ties it to the hint of spice from the eggnog making for a warm, comforting drink. Perfect for relaxing after a big day of cooking --and eating.
