The History of Egg Nog

You know, there’s nothing quite like Egg Nog. (well, with an additive)….But even for those who don’t partake in “additives”, there is a lovely essence about it. Typical “additive” is rum..I like mine with 100 proof Southern Comfort

Should you want…click on Southern Comfort they have the history behind it AND a great interactive recipe book, that one may download.

In the meantime, back to my wonderful Comfort Egg Nog …OH and Merry Christmas to all.

    I haven’t been quite up to snuff for the last few days, but I had to stop by and wish you a Merry Christmas!

    I like egg nog, but the holidays are the only time I indulge in something other than brandy. I like to make real hot chocolate, to which I add a large portion of Baileys. Yum.

    Have a joyful day, Cid, and a happy and prosperous New Year.

    Thanks for being you.

    Merry Christmas Salty!

    I keep promising El Cid that I’ll try egg nog, so I really must. The pressure’s mounting!

    Brandy’s delicious!

    I do hope you have a really terrific Christmas and a Happy New Year!

    May the Big boy upstairs, bless and keep you and yours…Happy, Safe and Well.

    Obviously, HE knows what is behind that red hair and those lovely green eyes. You got some ‘splain to do…but with your intelligence, talent for the written and spoken word…YOU have it knocked.

    Ummmm, but I’d start now if I was you…I mean, you have many years left to…ummm, come clean.

    Merry Christmas, my dear.

    The nog is wonderful, even more so with “additives”…:). I shall read all later.

    Merry Christmas, from the Cid and his trusty sword, Tizona.

    Hi El Cid
    Just dropped by – I must try eggnog sometime – I’ve found an easy recipe for it so I might give it a go when Mum’s here for New Year.
    Love the snow falling gently on your page, it’s nice!
    Hope Christmas was great, with the family around.
    All the best

    Hi Kae..

    Thanks for stopping by. Christmas was great, thank you.

    Yes you must try the nogged egg, just bear this in mind, please….

    Now that pasteurized eggs are readily available, I use those for all recipes calling for raw eggs. They are safe.


    Do what I do…and purchase the already prepared product in the gallon or half gallon containers at a grocery…typically in the dairy departments (if yours carry siad products)…NOT that I’m lazy or anything. All I do is add booz, ummm an “additive”…lol.

    The snowfall got me so chilled, that while typing I had to put a jacket on….:).

Well, SAY something...
