 A Word About Eggnog

Eggnog is a homogeneous blend of milk or cream, beaten eggs, sugar, nutmeg and usually Liquor of some kind such as: Rum, Brandy or Whiskey. Liquor-free eggnog has long been served to convalescents and growing children as a tonic…(*Say What?) Some eggnog is made by separating the eggs and stiffly beating the whites before adding them to the milk mixture, producing an airier brew. Commercial eggnog is alcohol-free and can be found year-round in some locations.
