Nog, Nog, Who’s There?

Cat 243 Doverby Mary Jo

Okay, that is a truly terrible pun for this Boxing Day!  Continuing our Word Wench tradition of celebrating Yuletide with short, fun posts every day between Christmas and Twelfth Night on January 6th, I decided to riff a bit on eggnog today.

There are many holiday specialty foods and drinks, and eggnog has a long, if somewhat fuzzy, history.  It might have come from East Anglia and is a mixture of milk, sugar, eggs, cream, and spices.  This being England, alcohol is generally added as well. 

Eggnog also because very popular in the U.S., and there was an Eggnog Riot at West EggnogPoint in 1826 when quantities of whisky were smuggled in for Christmas partying.  One of those involved in the riot, though he wasn't court-martialed, was Jefferson Davis, the future president of the Confederacy.  So eggnog can be dangerous!

Eggnog may be related to the medieval posset, in which hot milk is curdled with ale or wine and spices.  According to Wikipedia, a posset "was considered a specific remedy for some minor illnesses, such as a cold, and a general remedy for others, as even today people drink hot milk to help them get to sleep."  Caudle is a similar concoction.

I used to make an extravagantly rich Alabama Eggnog for holiday parties, though I gave it up when too many guests decided they couldn't consume sugar/eggs/milk/alcohol or whatever.  It sure was good, though!  Here's a similar recipe, though mine didn't include the brandy or the aging.  

Commercial eggnogs are widely available at this season, and there is even a chocolate version.  Adding a bit of rum or other spirits and dusting the top with nutmeg or cinnamon makes a pleasant and slightly decadent drink. 

Another method is to thaw eggnog Posset potice cream to make a delicious thick base for whatever one wants to add. so it can be as alcoholic or non-alcoholic as one wishes. I like just a dash of rum to cut the sweetness. 

Are you a fan of eggnog?  Have you had any this holiday season?  If not–what's stopping you?!!  <G>

  1. Though its origins are in England, I believe it’s more a US/Canadian thing these days. I’ve been in England at Christmastime four times, and have had most of my other Christmases in Australia, and I’ve never even seen it in real life, let alone had any!
    It’s something I want to try one day – the alcoholic version, of course! 🙂

  6. Great article, Mary Jo. That recipe looks amazing — more like an alcoholic custard than a drink. I’ve never had eggnog either — I suppose because it’s a rich drink more suited to cold weather than hot. At Christmas (in Australia) I’m more interested in something long, light and and frosty.

  11. Yes, that’s the kind of drink I mean. We had some gorgeous sangria when I was in Brisbane at the GenreCon conference — the weather was hot, the sangria cold and it slipped down a treat. I have this vague idea it also had berries in it –something yummy and a bit different from the usual sangria — will have to check with my fellow drinkers.

  16. I love eggnog. When I was a child my mom would buy a 16 oz carton for Christmas and we all had a small drop of it. I find eggnog too sweet now. Perhaps it’s the high corn fructose that is added in today’s eggnog ?

    High fructose corn syrup? Urk!!!! The Mayhem Consultant brought home a half gallon of the commercial eggnog, but he is no checker of labels. I picked up a quart of ‘nog from a small specialty dairy that probably wouldn’t have corn syrup–but I’m going to check those labels for sure. Like you, as an adult I find it too sweet on its own, which is why a small bit of rum is required even though I’m not much of a drinker.

  26. I think egg drinks are an acquired taste. My Dad made Tom and Jerry’s for Christmas time, a somewhat lighter egg drink mixed with brandy and rum or whiskey and rum, depending on his taste. He’d whip up a large batch on Christmas eve, and then use the batter for drinks until he ran out, usually around New Year’s.
    I’m afraid I prefer the no-calorie cider mix for a hot drink in the cold evenings to egg nog or Tom and Jerrys.

  31. I make my own that even non-egg nog drinkers love. I have two recipes, one for single glasses and another for a large bowl.
    We lived in East Anglia, but I can’t remember if I had to explain what it was to people or not.

  46. Gosh Mary Jo, thanks for posting this about egg nog. I bought some and forgot to drink it, and this has jogged the memory. I have just filled my glass with cold egg nog, a bit of Tia Maria, and some grated nutmeg, and am enjoying it as I type this. Ahh, summer in Tasmania. It is cool, and about to rain.

  71. Theo, that looks gorgeous. The Guernsey Farms Dairy looks similar to the Trickling Springs Creamery, which supplies the eggnog to my local gourmet grocer. (Based near Chambersburg, Pennsylvania.) It’s worth paying more for the good stuff. (The Trickling springs cost $5.99 a quart, I think!) Here’s tip of the eggnog glass from one connoiseur to another. *G*

  75. Theo, that looks gorgeous. The Guernsey Farms Dairy looks similar to the Trickling Springs Creamery, which supplies the eggnog to my local gourmet grocer. (Based near Chambersburg, Pennsylvania.) It’s worth paying more for the good stuff. (The Trickling springs cost $5.99 a quart, I think!) Here’s tip of the eggnog glass from one connoiseur to another. *G*

  76. I remember people talking about Tom & Jerry when I was a kid, but I don’t know what was in it. There was a homemade mix, and I think it was heated before the alcohol was added. As for eggnog, our local family-owned liquor/wine store got a case of Evan Williams EggNog one year. The next year they couldn’t keep it in stock. I haven’t seen it since. Either they can’t get it or maybe they only special order it by the case. Dang, it was good.
