NATIONAL EGGNOG DAY 

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.

Eggnog is a sweetened dairy-based beverage that is traditionally made with milk and/or cream, sugar, whipped eggs and spices.  When served at parties and holiday get-together’s, liquor is often added to the eggnog which is usually brandy, rum, whisky, bourbon, vodka or a combination of liquors.  The filled glass is typically garnished with sprinkled on cinnamon, nutmeg or pumpkin spice.

Eggnog may be added as a flavoring to food or drinks such as coffee, tea, breads, pies, cakes, puddings and etc.

The origin of the eggnog drink is debated.  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 this week!

Happy National Eggnog Day !
