Thanks for the heads up, Rebecca! We'll check it out. :)

bobbi :

wow, i love winter drinks! I wonder if I can make the egg nog with soy milk?

Lisa Michelle Cifuentes :

Good question, Bobbi! I haven't tried that yet but I imagine it would be okay. Or as another alternative, try almond milk! I think it actually might be thicker and have a more similar consistency to whole milk. And almond milk is actually quite delicious!

Let me know how it goes. :)

Katy :

They look delicious but alas alcoholic milk drinks do not go down well. Sadness.
