Cheery Cranberry Nog

Tangy cranberry flavors this frothy foamy beverage that's as refreshing as a yogurt smoothie. It always brings a blush of Christmas to my holiday spreads...and lots of complements from guests of all ages.

    This recipe was not like a nog at all! It was thin, not thick like the picture, and was pretty flavorless. There was some cranberry taste and bright color to it, but that was about it. If there were some flavorings and if this was made like a typical nog, with the eggs separated and the yolks made into a custard while the whites were whipped and folded in, that would have added some fluff to it and made it a bit better. I don't see this recipe as ever being very flavorful though.
