National Eggnog Day is celebrated once a year on Christmas Eve. Also known as eggnog, eggnog is a popular holiday drink throughout the United States.
This sugary dairy-based drink is traditionally made with milk and cream, sugar, beaten eggs and spices. When served at holiday parties and gatherings, liquor is often added to the eggnog. Many people prefer brandy, rum, whiskey, bourbon or vodka. Sometimes it is even combined. For extra holiday cheer, garnish the glass with a pinch of cinnamon, nutmeg or pumpkin spice.
Eggnog also flavors other holiday treats. For example, you can find eggnog-flavored coffees, teas, baked goods and puddings at your grocery store. You may even have some recipes of your own to flavor your holiday baking.
Although the origin of the eggnog drink is debated, many believe the drink was initially developed in East Anglia, England. However, others believe it originated as a medieval European drink made with hot milk.
