Classic Eggnog:

This traditional Christmas drink is frequently served with a dash of booze like brandy or rum, and perfectly reflects the joyous season. Eggnog has been consumed all across the world since the 18th century, with varieties like spiked eggnog and eggnog martinis emerging along the way. Eggnog is a traditional holiday drink made from a combination of milk, cream, sugar, beaten eggs, and spices such as nutmeg. It is often served with a sprinkle of nutmeg or cinnamon on top. It can also be mixed with alcoholic spirits like rum, brandy, or whiskey. Eggnog is typically served chilled and can be enjoyed by itself or as an ingredient in various holiday recipes such as cookies, cakes, and pies.
