Crack open the eggs and rum — it’s National Eggnog Day. This creamy, sweet drink with a kick is just one more reason to love Christmas Eve, according to punchbowl.com .
Milk, cream, sugar, eggs, spices and alcohol make up the traditional recipe, the website says. Although it’s mostly an American tradition, in Europe, eggnog is made with white wine. Peruvians use pomace brandy and Germans use beer, punchbowl.com says.
Eggnog might gets its name from the Old English word for strong ale, “nog,” and because it’s a beverage containing eggs, says punchbowl.com.
