Toast to National Egg Nog Day!

On December 24th, get ready to raise your glass and make a toast because it’s National Egg Nog Day! This festive beverage is a holiday favorite and is sure to put you in the spirit of the season. But what exactly is egg nog? Let’s find out!

What Is Egg Nog?

Egg nog (sometimes spelled “eggnog”) is a drink made with milk, cream, sugar, beaten eggs, and spices like nutmeg or cinnamon. Some recipes will also call for vanilla extract or a pinch of salt. The mixture is traditionally stirred by hand using a wooden spoon and served cold in a punch bowl or individual glasses.
The exact origins of egg nog are unknown, but it has been around since at least the 1700s – and likely much longer than that. It was popularized in America at the turn of the 19th century when it was served as a celebratory beverage at holiday parties (especially Christmas parties).

Today, egg nog continues to be popular around the world during winter months. It can be found in stores pre-made or as an instant powder mix; however, nothing beats homemade egg nog! Making your own gives you control over what ingredients you use and lets you adjust the flavor to your liking.

Raise your glasses high this holiday season and join us in toasting National Egg Nog Day! Cheers!
