National Eggnog Day

National Eggnog Day

We all remember the famous holiday drink that was sold only in shops during November and December. It’s eggnog! It’s eggnog! We can either buy it in stores for our whole family to enjoy or make our own. Eggnog is a Christmas staple drink. It is important to ask where eggnog came from and how did it become a reality. National Eggnog Day focuses on this question. Eggnog can also be known as egg punch, milk punch, or egg milk punch if it’s mixed with an alcoholic beverage. Eggnog is a rich, chilled and creamy dairy drink that’s sweetened with milk, cream, sugar and whipped eggs. It can be mixed with alcoholic beverages to create a thick, creamy, and creamy texture. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, nog is “a type of strong beer brewed in East Anglia”. But where did it come from? In 1775, Jonathan Boucher, a Maryland clergyman and philologist wrote a poem about it. It was published only thirty years later. You’ll be curious to know more about the poem. It was published in the New-Jersey Journal on March 26th 1788. The first use of the term was to describe a young man who had consumed eggnog. Eggnog could have originated from posset, which was a Medieval European drink made with hot milk. It was mixed with wine or ale and then flavored with spices. To celebrate, we simply need to buy or make our eggnog and then sit at the fireplace or kitchen table to enjoy our eggnog with family and friends. You can make an alcoholic version to share with your adult friends after the children go to sleep.
