Here is a Christmas treat for you, dear reader.
Premise 1: Coffee goes good with all breakfast foods.
Premise 2: Eggs are a breakfast food.
Premise 3: Eggnog is just eggs that have been nogged.
Conclusion: Coffee goes good with eggnog.
Seriously, it's good. I start 'nogging my coffee every year around this time, after realizing that while eggnog is good, it's hard to drink a whole carton of it before its expiry date. But not if you use any excess eggnog instead of cream.
Add some rum for an extra morning pick-me-up.
Starbucks will steal my idea, just like they did with maple coffee. You'll see. Then next year they'll come out with peanut butter lattes and butter-cheese macchiatos as if it was all their own genius idea. But you, dear reader, you know who the real genius is. Me. I'm the real genius.
