National Eggnog Day is December 24th
Enjoy a holiday tradition!
Have a creamy, smooth glass of eggnog while you finish wrapping that last gift to put under the tree, or while celebrating with family and friends.
National Eggnog Day is celebrated once a year on the day before Christmas. Also known as egg milk punch, eggnog is a very popular drink throughout the United States during the holidays according to (www.nationaldaycalendar.com).
Eggnog is a sweetened, dairy-based beverage that is traditionally made with milk and/or cream, sugar, whipped eggs and spices. Another option is to add liquor, usually brandy, rum, whiskey, bourbon, vodka, or a combination of liquors. Often, the filled glass is typically garnished with cinnamon, nutmeg or pumpkin spice.
Eggnog may be added as a flavoring to food or drinks such as coffee, tea, breads, pies, cakes, and puddings (ooh, this sounds so good).
The origin of the eggnog drink is uncertain. It is the belief of some that the drink was originally developed in East Anglia England, while others believe it originated as a medieval European beverage made with hot milk.
While gathering together with family and friends, enjoy a glass or two of eggnog!
You can only buy eggnog between the end of October and Christmas, however, you can make your own, anytime!
