What Is Eggnog?

Eggnog is a rich, creamy drink that tends to go hand-in-hand with Christmas. It’s made of milk, cream, eggs, and sugar, traditionally seasoned with nutmeg, and often spiked with rum, whiskey, or brandy. There is controversy over the safety of eggnog since it’s typically made with raw eggs. While some feel the alcohol kills off bacteria, there have been reports of eggnog causing salmonella. Fortunately, there are tons of recipes that use a cooked egg base, as well as completely eggless recipes that taste just as delicious. See below for our favorite eggnog recipes and desserts!
