The distinctive taste of Christmas can be found in the loved holiday beverage, Eggnog. Egg yolk, sugar, milk, cream, and a dash of nutmeg are all you need to create the best holiday drink.

Whether virgin or spilked with liquor, there is no beverage as Christmas-sy as the Eggnog, and to set it off from the rest, here are a few recipes that you can try:

Spiced Chocolate Eggnog

From Martha Stewart's recipes, an extra special Spiced Chocolate eggnog recipe can do the trick. With Mexican chocolate and cinnamon sticks added to the mix, it's a new spin on the classic beverage. What makes this drink even better (besides the chocolate) is the fact that it can be made a day in advance for a lovely chilled drink. It also goes best with hot churros for garnish. What's better than churros and chocolate, right?

Elizabeth's Eggnog Cheesecake Bars

If desserts are more up your speed, cheesecake bars are as heavenly as it could get, with eggnog, nutmeg, and a touch of brandy added to the classic cheesecake filling, it's a win-win for those who would rather have their cake and eat it, too.

Eggnog French Toast

Sure, drinking flavored milk is yummy, but what about a decadent holiday breakfast for champions? Lifestyle Blog Living Better Together suggested an Eggnog French Toast with Gingerbread Syrup to wake you up come Christmas morning. Make the classic eggnog recipe, dip French bread in it, and cook both sides until golden. Plate with butter and gingerbread syrup, and viola! Christmas in your mouth.

Eggnog Martini

Far from the usual spiked drink, an eggnog martini is even classier, and beautiful enough to toast to for the holidays. Substitute bourbon for Vanilla vodka and Amaretto, and serve in a martini glass with nutmeg garnish, and you can celebrate your holidays with a classic beverage in the booziest way possible.

Peppermint Eggnog

Parties for adults are boozy, but what about kids who also want to enjoy Christmas with the delectable eggnog recipes? Since responsible adults can't spike their drinks, kids will have to go nonalcoholic, but with a kick - who's to say peppermint and vanilla won't go a long way for the tykes? Cups rimmed with white chocolate and crushed candy canes is one way to make them feel adult without the booze.

Which eggnog recipe will you be making your guests this holiday season?
