This popular drink keeps everybody warm even on the coldest of winter nights! As the eggs for eggnog are not cooked, make sure they are really fresh. In many American families, eggnog is still the Christmas and New Year’s Eve drink of tradition and choice. The origin of the name is a mystery, though, as is the history of the drink. But, no matter where eggnog comes from, it tastes fabulous. A very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
