I've never had eggnog before, so I thought I'd try some this Christmas. I had always been under the impression that it was served warm, so I was very surprised to read that it was normally served chilled. This didn't sit right with me, so I thought I'd create a warm version and try the leftovers once it had cooled down. Unfortunately, it all disappeared and there were no leftovers! It's like an alcoholic, runny creme anglais. Om nom nom! ( Oh, and sorry about the sugar being in millilitres; I measured it out in a jug rather than weighing it! :-/ ) You know, I always thought this was an American invention, but it appears it has its origins in either England or Europe, depending on which reports you read.
