National Eggnog Day

On the day before Christmas, National Eggnog Day raises a holiday toast once a year. Eggnog is also known as egg milk punch, and it is a common drink in the United States during the holidays.

The sweetened dairy-based drink is traditionally made with milk and cream, sugar, whipped eggs, and spices. When serving at parties and holiday get-togethers, liquor is often added to the eggnog. Many people favor brandy, rum, whiskey, bourbon, or vodka over vodka. They may even mix up a mixture. For added holiday cheer, try a sprinkle of cinnamon, nutmeg, or pumpkin spice in the glass.

Eggnog is also available in other holiday treats. For example, you can buy eggnog flavored coffees, teas, baked goods, and puddings at your grocery store. You may even have a few recipes of your own to spice up your holiday baking, too!

Many believe that the eggnog drink originated in East Anglia, England, England, even though the source of the eggnog drink is debated. However, some believe it originated as a medieval European drink made with hot milk.
