I love eggnog and this is one holiday tradition that I have no desire to make from scratch. I’m perfectly happy to buy it already prepared in the refrigerator carton! 

Store bought eggnog is a quick starting point for making my Easiest eggnog punch recipe or this coffee eggnog punch. It gets a kick from the addition of instant coffee and other flavors for the perfect holiday drink.

This is a wonderful addition to a holiday bagel breakfast bar. Set it up for your overnight guests and let them serve themselves.

Since there’s a small amount of coffee in it, it’s a great way to start your day or to serve at an afternoon cookie exchange party.

PARTY TIP: Use decaff coffee granules if you’re worried about caffeine intake.

Make this with or without alcohol

It’s easy to entertain your way with recipes that let you add or omit alcohol. For this punch you can add it in or serve it without. You can provide a batch of the basic recipe and let guests add a shot of alcohol into their own glass too.
