Eggnog Affogato

On one hand, January seemed like the longest month ever...I was sick, it was really cold all month and 30 day no drinking (what was I thinking?)  On the other hand, January seemed to fly by and I didn't get most of what I wanted to do done...ummm, procrastinate much?

Well, I FINALLY took down my Christmas cards and the Christmas pictures of Gman and EZ that I had displayed.  And I found the last of the eggnog ice cream I made (which was this eggnog with rum run through my ice cream machine). 
I decided to celebrate the end of the L O N G E S T month of the year with this eggnog affogato, but instead of a shot of hot coffee, I used warmed keto coffee liqueur.
It was a nice little treat to reward myself for finishing something that should have been done 3 or 4 weeks ago.  But, I'm all about rewards.  I think we all need a reward just for staying alive and not losing our minds during that long January.

Eggnog Affogato

1 scoop eggnog ice cream, or vanilla or chocolate
1 shot keto coffee liqueur

In a small bowl or mug, warm coffee liqueur in microwave.  Meanwhile scoop ice cream into cup or pretty glass (if using glass make sure the coffee liqueur is just warm and not hot).  Pour coffee liqueur over ice cream and feel good that January is over and you might survive until spring.

  1. Your eggnog affogato looks delicious. Hope you survive February better than January. It's hot, hot, hot here in Australia, and I'm not sure I would survive a winter in Alaska, but it's what you get used to.

  2. My thoughts are with you and the heat and all the fires. Take care and stay safe.
