Eggnog is one of my other favorite drinks. This one comes around Christmas time each year. I wished it was out all year long. #EggNog
I like to add cinnamon and nutmeg to the top of mine, but mostly just cinnamon. December and Christmas time is popular for this holiday beverage including its own holiday.

Eggnog, egg nog or egg-nog, historically also known as milk punch or egg milk punch, is a rich, chilled, sweetened, dairy-based beverage. It is traditionally made with milk, cream, sugar, whipped egg whites, and egg yolks.WikiPedia
I tried to make my own homemade version, it did not turn out. It was very nasty. I think I tried one that you had to cook it. I might be able to find one online and try it and see how I like it. If I find one that I like, I will share the recipe.
Note: Only use a fresh egg. Test the egg’s freshness by placing it in a glass of water. If the egg floats, discard it, as this indicates the egg is too old. Only use eggs that rest on the bottom of the glass. This will ensure the most flavorful drink and helps to reduce the risk of salmonella.
But, I do like Mayfield’s, Food City, and Weigel’s Brands the best.
I do not drink it with rum or any other alcohol. I don’t drink at all. I have choose not to since 2012. Why Christians Shouldn’t Drink Alcohol.
