9 Incredible Eggnog Recipes
Eggnog, or egg nog, is a sweetened dairy-based beverage traditionally made with milk and/or cream, sugar, and whipped eggs (which gives it a frothy texture). Sweet spirits such as brandy, rum or bourbon are often added. The finished serving is often garnished with a sprinkling of ground cinnamon or nutmeg. – Eggnog Wikipedia
Stories abound of the origins of Eggnog some say it was created from scratch and others say it was created when someone added extra ingredients to their warm milk one night. What is known is that as early at the late 1700’s people in the US and Canada were drinking Eggnog before leaving on a journey. The drink was meant to warm the traveler, fill them up, and the alcohol for helping to fend off disease.
While Eggnog can typically be found in the grocery store from Thanksgiving through New Year’s that doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy eggnog all year round. Whether a fun glass of eggnog in February or to make a really hot day in July feel less oppressive eggnog can be added to everyday recipes to warm your house and heart with thoughts of the Holidays.
