Eggnog is pretty much synonymous with Christmas. What other time of year do you get to drink something that’s basically custard spiked with alcohol? A good eggnog is made up of just a few simple ingredients – alcohol, sugar, cream and raw eggs. Now if you are skeptical of drinking something with raw eggs, take note that the Centre of Disease Control (CDC) tested copious amounts of homemade eggnog to find that the addition of alcohol basically wiped out the risk of any contamination. And if all this isn’t enough to entice you, December 24th is National Eggnog Day. So go ahead and indulge a little – it’s the holidays.
