About The Eggnog Cocktail

Eggnog, a delicious, creamy classic, is an essential part of the holidays for many families. Combining eggs, sugar, milk, and cream with bourbon and rum is the best version of Eggnog. The potency will put a little more cheer in your holidays.

Eggnog has a rich and interesting history with a lot of competing claims of the origin of the drink that can get lost in an etymological debate. However, there are a few things to take notice of. First, Eggnog is primarily imbibed in Canada and the USA during the holiday season. It can be drunk hot or cold depending on your preference and outdoor temperature. The first printed mention of Eggnog was in 1788 in “The Jersey Journal” that referred to a young man drinking a glass of Eggnog. According to the Wikipedia Gods, there seems to be a solid consensus that Eggnog as we know today is a culinary descendant of Posset.

All of this side, everyone can agree that Eggnog is universally delicious.
