Eggnog, the creamy classic cocktail, is an essential part of the winter holidays. The recipe can vary depending on who’s making it, but the basic formula consists of eggs, sugar, milk and cream, plus a spirit.
With the right hit of booze and sweetness, a glass of chilled eggnog is a cherished holiday drink. Spiked eggnog is usually served with small appetizers rather than with dinner, and it can also double as an adult dessert or as a side beverage to serve with sweet treats.
