National Eggnog Day – Yes, there is a day for those of us who enjoy this holiday drink called Eggnog.
National Eggnog Day
One of my favorite seasonal drinks has it’s day!
Held annually on December 24th each year. This drink now has it’s own holiday. You can only find this drink near Christmas time. Just after Halloween and until the New Year. It is a bit pricey to drink. I like adding a touch of cinnamon to mine. It has been called a milk punch or egg milk munch. This holiday drink is a very rich milk drink. It is also very creamy too. Usually made with milk, cream, sugar, whipped egg whites or even egg yolks. The egg yolks often give it the texture it has.
Sadly some people add alcohol to theirs. I don’t do that. I don’t drink alcohol at all. You can buy the store brand. I believe Mayfield’s is the best, however, it is the most expensive. Food City’s brand of Eggnog is good too. Vanilla, Pumpkin Spice and Cinnamon are examples of flavored eggnog you can find. Some people even make homemade eggnog. I tried to make it one time, it tasted nasty. So I just stick to store bought. Maybe, I didn’t make it right!
I wished Eggnog was available year round! I enjoy it that much. Call me weird!

I remember leaving Egg Nog for Santa along with his cookies.
