TODAY IS EGGNOG DAY
Eggnog Day is observed once a year on the day before Christmas. Also known as egg milk punch, eggnog is a popular drink during the holidays.
Eggnog is a sweetened dairy-based beverage traditionally made with milk and cream, sugar, whipped eggs, and spices. When served at parties and holiday get-togethers, liquor is often added to the eggnog, such as brandy, rum, whiskey, bourbon, vodka, or any combination. The full glass is typically garnished with a sprinkle of cinnamon, nutmeg, or pumpkin spice.
Also used as a flavouring, eggnog creates delicious coffees, teas, baked goods, and puddings.
Even though the origin of the eggnog drink is debated, many believe that the drink initially developed in East Anglia, England. However, others believe it originated as a medieval European beverage made with hot milk.
HOW TO OBSERVE #EggnogDay
While gathering together with family and friends, enjoy a glass or two of eggnog! Other ways to enjoy the day include baking eggnog flavored goodies. Make a seasonal ice cream or another holiday treat to share.
