Cozy Up With This Rich and Creamy Eggnog White Russian

Something about the holidays makes us crave indulgent cocktails, and this Eggnog White Russian (a staple of holiday Restaurant Menus) totally fits the bill. It is rich, creamy, and easy to make with just a few simple ingredients.

Return the mixture to the saucepan and cook over low heat until thickened. Be sure to stir frequently so that it doesn't burn. Finally, add the vanilla extract.
