  1. I’m wide awake in the wee hours of the morning and I wish I could sip on some of this so I could go back to sleep for a couple of hours! My parents always have Baileys and I think I mentioned that my dad loves eggnog so I will have to make this for him when we visit later this week. It sounds like a great combination!

  2. would i have to dress up as santa to earn some of this? because i most definitely, absolutely, totally would. :)

  3. This has my name written all over it the next two nights when I’m going to be in a mountain of presents, frantically trying to get them wrapped! Fabulous way to make it so much more fun.

  4. I love baileys and I love eggnog but have never mixed the two….I’m definitely trying this today…I just saw that Baileys has a chocolate covered cherry flavor which I want to try too…Baileys screams holidays to me.

  5. I have never heard of doing this but OMG. I’m doing this TONIGHT. Way better than just drinking eggnog plain. Champagne cocktails with dinner, eggnog and baileys for dessert!!

  6. on my list now for sure! Happy holidays!

  7. Plain eggnog is so overrated :) Who knew two ingredients could work so well together?? And we’re all over quick and easy this time of the year. Perfect recipe Averie!

  8. My mom’s two favorite drinks. I wonder if she’s ever combined them….?

  9. HOW brilliant is this?! I could really, really use some after all the crazy gift shopping, wrapping, decorating madness of the last few days!

  10. Whoa, mixing baileys and eggnog is the best idea! Love this Averie!

  11. oh lord, 2 of my favorites!!! And, why haven’t I ever thought to combine them? Love this, running to the kitchen now… right after I pin it!

  12. I agree with you – Baileys is great with anything. And this drink is pure genius.

  13. Holy mackerel. Brilliant!

  14. Merry Christmas Averie! Hope you have a blessed holiday

  15. What a great way to jazz up eggnog. I hope you had a Merry Christmas!

  16. This sounds perfect and a great way to end the year! I usually just add some rum to my egg nog, but Balieys is delicious and amazing in everything. Gonna sit back, put my feet up, and sip this on New Year’s Eve! Congrats on all your success this year and I wish you all the best in 2015!

  17. Now that it’s January, is it still acceptable to drink eggnog? :) Excited to try this out and would love to make my own eggnog – do you have a solid go-to recipe? Thanks and happy 2015!

  18. A shot of Bailys’ into a cop of hot chocolate also works great…

  19. With hot chocolate is also great…
