    Eggnog

    Many believe that eggnog is a tradition that was brought to America from Europe. This is partially true. Eggnog is related to various milk and wine punches that had been concocted long ago in the "Old World". However, in America a new twist was put on the theme. Rum was used in the place of wine. In Colonial America, rum was commonly called "grog", so the name eggnog is likely derived from the very descriptive term for this drink, "egg-and-grog", which corrupted to egg'n'grog and soon to eggnog. At least this is one version...

    Other experts would have it that the "nog" of eggnog comes from the word "noggin". A noggin was a small, wooden, carved mug. It was used to serve drinks at table in taverns (while drinks beside the fire were served in tankards). It is thought that eggnog started out as a mixture of Spanish "Sherry" and milk. The English called this concoction "Dry sack posset". It is very easy to see how an egg drink in a noggin could become eggnog.

    The true story might be a mixture of the two and eggnog was originally called "egg and grog in a noggin". This was a term that required shortening if ever there was one.

    That's the word on the street. So, do you buy your eggnog or do you make it? Do you spike it (I sure do)? What's your favorite eggnog recipe and will you share it?

    Best Ever Eggnog is one of mine that we enjoy.

    If your leary of fresh eggs there's quite a few recipes in the data base that will suit, or you can use " that liquid chicken" in a carton-it's been pasturized.

    I long for the olden days - not that long ago - when you did not have to worry about your eggs. A good eggnog is so nice, but so many of them are heavy and cloying and way too sweet or too boozy. Don't get me wrong - I love my booze - but I don't want to be knocked over! At least not with a few sips!
