Eggnog

Eggnog is also known as milk punch and is a rich and creamy sweetened cocktail that is traditionally made with cream, sugar, egg and spirits. Many recipes exist, and the alcohol varies from brandy, rum, whisky to bourbon and it can be drunk hot or cold.

In the USA and Canada, Eggnog is a traditional drink that is consumed during the Christmas period and can be purchased in grocery stores already prepared. However, it is often homemade, using age-old family recipes; here is just one of many variations.
