What is Eggnog, anyway?
Its origins date back to 17th century Britain. During the winter months, the wealthy would drink warm milk and egg beverages seasoned with expensive spices such as ground nutmeg and cinnamon.
The name eggnog comes from the fact that the drink was served in carved wooden mugs or bowls that were known as a noggin, or nog.
