A perfect toast for holidays, eggnog was originally served as a winter beverage during the holiday season - between Halloween, American Thanksgiving and New Year's Eve. Eggnog typically means eggs in a small cup. Eggnog is very famous and well-liked drink in Central America, South America and North America.

Eggnog can be traced back to the English drink Posset made from eggs, cream, wine and other types of liquor. Rum was added to the recipe as it was available aplenty. A perfect blend of beaten eggs, milk, cream and sugar, eggnog derives its flavor from cinnamon and nutmeg. Eggnog can be prepared using liquors like whisky, sake, rum and brandy. Most modern eggnog recipes include milk and eggs; cream is used for a richer version of eggnog. Eggnogs are topped with vanilla, whipped cream or ice cream. Low-fat eggnogs can be prepared from low-fat or skimmed milk.

Eggnog tips

  • Use pasteurized eggs or heat the eggs slowly at 160 F to avoid any harmful bacteria.

  • Egg less eggnog can be made by using pudding mixes in place of eggs.

  • Eggnog must be served in small quantities as it has rich egg content.

  • Eggnog is served with beer in Germany and with sherry wine in Spain.

  • Eggnog can be served as a hot dessert as it is done in cold places of Europe and Iceland.

  • Cinnamon enhances the flavor of the eggnog; add it just before you serve the eggnog.
