When it comes to Christmas, eggnog is usually the drink of choice. In fact, Christmas isn’t complete without a warm mug of eggnog – whether you like it or not!

When you break the ingredients down – a combination of cream, milk, sugar, eggs, and alcohol – eggnog doesn’t sound too appealing. Therefore, you may be wondering how this concoction became such a holiday tradition.

Scrumptious Eggnog Cheesecake Recipes You Will Love

Well, it started with 13th-century British monks where the drink was reserved for the wealthy.

Then, the drink traveled across the pond with American colonists – to a land rich in milk and rum – to become what it is known as today.

Today, eggnog is usually composed of a combination of cream, milk, eggs (either with just the yolks or the yolks and whipped egg whites), nutmeg, sugar, and sometimes alcohol.

You may already be familiar with the store-bought variations – however, did you know it is super simple to make?

Once you’ve mastered the basics, you can start incorporating eggnog into all your favorite recipes. For instance, cheesecake!
