What is eggnog;ย Eggnog, egg nog or egg-nog, historically also known as milk punch or egg milk punch, is a rich, chilled, sweetened, creamy dairy-based beverage traditionally made with milk, cream, sugar, whipped egg yolks, nutmeg and of course rum ๐Ÿ˜œ. My version is extremely easy and extremely fast.

So I won’t be taking way to long, explaining what eggnog is, everybody knows what it is. Maybe just a little explanation; how do they call eggnog in Czech? “Vajecny konak” which literally means “Egg cognac”, very similar to the English name, but what about in French? In French they call it “lait de poule” which means “chicken’s milk”; probably the nameย  refers to the version of eggnog without alcohol. Alright enough of talking, let’s do some good Christmas eggnog with rum of course๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿธ.Cheers!!

Enjoy your eggnog with your closed once! Don’t forget to share this very typical holiday drink. You can even share with kids, if you make the version without rum of course! If you like it less sweet, use then condensed milk unsweetened or use instead evaporated milk. Condensed milk is very thick, so even if you don’t like thick consistency, then 1 can of condensed milk and one can of evaporated milk, should be perfectly fine.

Have a Happy Holidays friends!!๐ŸŽ„๐Ÿ˜โœŒ
