Celebrate National Eggnog Day with this festive holiday drink!
Tomorrow is National Eggnog Day and we have a special treat for you to celebrate the occasion! Our cranberry eggnog muffins will get you in the holiday spirit if you’re not already. Eggnog has been a popular drink dating back to medieval times. Historians also found records that show George Washington created his own eggnog recipe. And most recently, David Letterman was known to have used eggnog for his holiday pranks on guests and his camera crew. So without further adieu let’s make these muffins!
