6 essential eggnog recipes to get you through the holidays

At this point in the month, we assume you've consumed a small pond's worth of eggnog. But if you haven't already hopped on the 'nog train, there's still time! You've got exactly two more weeks to drink that holiday classic without getting any funny looks, so head straight to the good stuff with these six eggcellent recipes from Pinterest. You could stick to the basics with a straight-up spiced version, or go a little nuts with an eggnog cocoa. But whichever batch you choose, make sure to leave a cup for Santa, too -- that guy's real sick of milk and cookies.
