Eggnog Ice-Cream

The holidays are an excellent opportunity to indulge in certain foods and drinks that one usually gives up or forgets about during the rest of the year. Eggnog, most definitely being one of them. 

Eggnog is a tradition that was brought to America from Europe. It is related to various milk and wine punches that were concocted long ago in the “Old World” for festive occasions and holidays.  However, in America, a new twist was put on the theme. Rum was used in the place of wine. In Colonial America, rum was commonly called “grog”, so the name eggnog is likely derived from the very descriptive term for this drink, “egg-and-grog”, which corrupted to egg’n’grog and soon to eggnog.

So, how about introducing eggnog to your family and friends as an ice-cream this year? Yes, this will get their attention!
