The title of this blog comes from my mother. She always used to say, “Sheree is such a good conversationalist.” This was her kind and gentle way of saying, “Sheree talks nonstop.” She would also say, “When Sheree dies and goes to Heaven, she won’t miss a beat. She’ll just look straight at God and say, ‘As I was saying….’ and continue on with her chatter.” So the title is a nod to my mother and her wit.
Take it up a Notch with Sheree Delorenzos Coffee Eggnog Punch
Sheree's Coffee Eggnog Punch
This is wonderful for a holiday party. It allows your guests to serve themselves, so as host you don’t have to keep remaking drinks. I like this eggnog recipe because it takes things up a notch. It can easily be done as a nonalcoholic beverage for kids and non-drinkers. If you do follow the recipe and include (my namesake) Sherry as well as brandy, you can use a basic brand. Since this a punch with a lot of different flavors, you don’t need to use a top shelf liquor to get a delicious result.
1 half-gallon eggnog
3 cups coffee, cooled
1 quart coffee ice cream
1 cup Cream Sherry
1 cup Brandy
1 quart whipped cream
Ground nutmeg to taste
Add eggnog to a punch bowl.
Add coffee, ice cream, Sherry, Brandy, and whipped cream. Using the ladle, mix ingredients by stirring.
Serve in punch glasses and garnish with a spoonful of the whipped cream and a dash or two of nutmeg.
