National Eggnog Day is observed once a year on the day before Christmas. Also known as egg milk punch, eggnog is a popular drink throughout the United States during the holidays.
Eggnog is a sweetened dairy-based beverage traditionally made with milk and cream, sugar, whipped eggs, and spices. When served at parties and holiday get-togethers, liquor is often added to the eggnog, such as brandy, rum, whiskey, bourbon, vodka, or any combination. The full glass is typically garnished with a sprinkle of cinnamon, nutmeg, or pumpkin spice. We did taste tests and our recommendation is actually Publix Eggnog and if you’re not driving add some bourbon, or brandy. Talk about adding some warmth to a cold night.
Also used as a flavoring, eggnog creates delicious coffees, teas, baked goods, and puddings.
So as you hang your stockings with care and finely get the kids to bed before Santa’s arrival, maybe an adult beverage like this will make sugar plums dance in your head. At least until the wee hours when the kids wake up. From our home to yours have a safe, warm and very Merry Christmas!
Even though the origin of the eggnog drink is debated, many believe that the drink initially developed in East Anglia, England. However, others believe it originated as a medieval European beverage made with hot milk.
