"This is an authentic traditional 19th century English holiday drink. It's best if you use fresh nutmeg only. Make it and enjoy it while decorating the tree - it's incredibly delicious, rich and oh so addictive!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

freshly grated nutmeg
Do not make this if you are alone. Unless what you really want for Christmas is a butt like a polar bear. This is so good! Had to update this review: I took this to a recipe swap and several of the ladies used it as a creamer for their coffee. I'm not a coffee drinker and didn't try it, but they raved about it.
This recipe is great for those who do not care for egg nog. It almost tasted like banana. It was, however, way too sweet. Next time I would cut the sugar in half and add a little bit more apple cider. The heavy cream and sugar really over power any good that comes along with this recipe. But with some tweaking it could be great.
I really like this recipe! My husband couldn't tell the difference between this and eggnog. It is extremely quick and easy. I have to fully agree with the author's statement...in this particular recipe it is imperative that you only use FRESH grated nutmeg. I had just purchased whole nutmeg from Penzey's spices (yum) and it was excellent. This is a keeper for sure.
I have to say this is very good. Taste just like eggnog but without egg. There is a slight hint of apple from the cider ... just enough to add some spice. The nutmeg is a must (I did not use fresh) as this brings it all together. I used half the sugar called for and for half of that I used dark brown sugar.
This was pretty good. It tasted similar to eggnog, but I think I like this more. The only things I really didn't like were the big chunks of grated nutmeg and the high calorie content:) A nice holiday drink nonetheless.
Oh my gosh. This was soooooo good! They're right, it's addictive. I hesitated making it because of all the cream, but after I tasted it, I couldn't have cared less what the calorie count was. Way better than egg nog, I can't wait for Christmas to make more!
This was very good. Tastes like a melted milkshake with nutmeg. It was too sweet for me so I added another cup of milk and cut back the sugar by 1/4 Cup.
Very delicious! I've made it with just milk and it still tastes good (though not as creamy). Remember to use chilled apple cider, because hot will curdle the milk-yucky!
