This recipe literally takes 4 minutes and will make 1 serving so modify for more cocktails as needed.  Ingredients are 1/2 cup strong black coffee, 2/3 cups eggnog, 1/3 cup milk, sugar, whipped cream or nutmeg (optional but so delicious).  To make:  Pour strong black coffee into a mug and add warmed eggnog/milk mixture.  You can warm in the microwave or stovetop.  Add a little sugar or sugar substitute to sweeten a bit.  Top off with whipped cream and a pinch of nutmeg.  If you are serving this in the evening, add a shot of rum or brandy for extra holiday cheer:)

~Enjoy a safe weekend celebrating with family and friends~
