Originating in England, the drink has now become associated with Thanksgiving in the United States and Christmas time in many parts of the world.

Alcoholic Beverage

Traditionally, some kind of alcohol is added to eggnog, though non-alcoholic recipes also exist. In the United States, bourbon or whiskey is the spirit of choice, while in the United Kingdom, sherry or brandy is usually added to the beverage.

Eggnog Riot

While eggnog has occupied an important place during holiday social gatherings in many parts of the world, excess consumption of the drink has led to chaos in at least one particular situation. In 1826, during a Christmas party at the United States Military Academy in West Point, New York drunk cadets got involved in a brawl after drinking large amounts of eggnog. The event is popularly remembered as the Eggnog Riot.

How to Celebrate?

  • Make eggnog and share with friends and family.
  • Make an adult version of the beverage by adding alcohol to it.

Did You Know…

…that according to some, the name eggnog comes from the Middle English word noggin? The word refers to a wooden mug used to serve alcohol.
