A History of Eggnog

Back in Europe of the 1700s, people liked to keep warm during the cold winters. A drink developed that mixed warm milk and eggs with Sherry or Brandy to keep the chill at bay. This was served in a noggin - a small, wooden mug. This became nicknamed as 'eggnog'.

During the 1800s this became hugely popular in England, especially at Christmastime. This was a classic punch served in large volumes to all holiday visitors. It was served both warm and cold to anyone who came calling during the winter season.

George Washington loved eggnog and made his own recipes up. Roam this site for some for you to try on your own, to continue this tradition!
