What is Eggnog?

Eggnog is a sweetened dairy-based beverage made with milk, cream, sugar, beaten eggs (which gives it a frothy texture), and flavored with ground cinnamon and nutmeg. Alcoholic versions also exist with the addition of various liquors, such as brandy, rum, whiskey, advocaat and/or Baileys Irish Cream.

Eggnog is traditionally served during the holiday season between Thanksgiving and New Year's Day. Those who drink eggnog are customarily supposed to drink to each other's health, though after a few glasses of spiked eggnog, most will drink to anything.

A carton and a glass of eggnog from Montreal, called by its French name lait de poule (literally "hen's milk").
