Now let’s pass it over to Koren Wiskman who is sharing a treat with you today!

Hello fellow card makers and crafters

Today is super special. Not only do I have a paper-crafting project for you, but also, I am sharing my semi-homemade recipe for Egg Nog.  Don’t run away, it’s more like a milk shake than homemade Egg Nog. This is a tried and true recipe and you can make it with or without alcohol. Adults and kids alike will love this around the holidays. So, we are going to make some, package it up and put a pretty tag on it using Your Next Stamp products. Lets get started!

First, lets make the semi homemade Egg Nog. Here is a list of the ingredients you will need and brief explanation of how to mix them together. It isn’t hard. You can also watch me make this recipe in the video I created to go along with this post. Check for the link to it down below.

Semi-Homemade “Adult” or kid friendly Egg Nog… remember to omit all of the alcohol to ensure that the egg nog is kid friendly. I have made this recipe both ways. It tastes like a special holiday milkshake when you leave out the alcohol. Also, I love to use Turkey Hill brand products for my family. You may or may not have those available in your area. 

Ingredients:
Turkey Hill Vanilla Bean Ice-cream 1 – 1 1/2 quart container (my grandmother used to use the Egg Nog flavored Ice-cream, which is also seasonal, but my family prefers Vanilla Bean) 
Turkey Hill Egg Nog (seasonal) 1 – 1 quart 
Sugar – 1 cup (granulated) 
Cinnamon (to taste) – about 1 tbsp 
Nutmeg (to taste) – about 1 tbsp


Alcohol:
3/4 cup Bourbon 
3/4 cup Brandy 
3/4 cup Rye 


Tips before we get started-
Do not whip or over mix your ingredients. The egg nog will begin to froth, and you don’t want that. Slowly stir only.
 

1. Start with your ice-cream closer to room temp. This well help mix all the ingredients well. 
2. add your egg nog. 
3. add sugar
4. add alcohol if making “adult” egg nog. 
5. add cinnamon and nutmeg
6. enjoy!  


– the more expensive the alcohol the better the taste, but it is not needed. The cheap stuff will do. This recipe can be frozen. Also, some of my family members like to add an additional shot of Grand Marnier to increase the alcohol content. Be careful, it tastes good, but it will kick your butt! -consider yourself warned! 



YNS Supplies:  Holiday Buddies stamp and die sets | 3 x 3 Circle Panel Die

As for the tag, I started with an off white almost light gray in color cardstock with natural fibers and a vellum coating. I die cut a tag die that best fit with the Your Next Stamp Mini Circle Die. I stamped the sentiment from the Holiday Buddies stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black ink. Then cut a piece of acetate with the same tag die and adhered them together with Ranger Multi Medium Matte. I trimmed both the back and the front of the tag down by about 2 inches to be more of a square tag than a rectangle.

 

To create my shaker I adhered foam adhesive strips in a square along the outside of the inlaid Mini Circle die on the front of my tag, then added large sugar crystals. I cut a square 3 inches by 3 inches which creates the perfect backing to my shaker bits. I used Distress Oxide inks in Wilted Violet, Cracked Pistachio, and Picked Raspberry to ink-blend an ombre of color and also sprinkled it with a light dusting of water to create that distressed look we all know and love. That piece was attached to become the backing of my shaker bits.  I adhered the back of the tag with tape runner adhesive.


My images were pre stamped with Your Next Stamp Black Olive ink and colored with my Copic markers. I popped them up on the bottom right corner with foam adhesive. Ribbon and twine were added to the tag to attach it to my Ball jars filled with Egg Nog. For more in depth information and a video of me and my family making the egg nog, click the video link above.

These Ball jars full of Egg Nog will be given out to my friends and family during the holiday season. I deliver them to coworkers and hand them out to people that come to visit throughout the month of December. I usually make a double batch before Thanksgiving and another before Christmas. My husband demands that I set him aside some for his birthday on Dec. 27th. It is usually gone by the New Year.

I hope you all have a happy and healthy holiday season and a fantastic new year! Don’t forget to leave a comment to be entered for a chance to win!
