It’s not that I love eggnog, but I really liked this article from earlier in the week on the history of eggnog, and what it’s made of nowadays. I have my own memories of my dad and uncle serving themselves a glass of eggnog on Christmas day. The tumbler had a festive holly decoration on it, and the drink itself, from the carton, was dolled up with a splash of brandy and a sprinkle of nutmeg on top. I could handle one or two sips, max. It was, well, too sludgy in texture, as the article suggests, and rich.
I know I couldn’t stomach store-bought eggnog now anymore than I did as a kid. But I would consider making and trying a home-made version. I’m thinking I’m not alone. Does anyone have a recipe they’re confident about?
