Eggnog is a merry part of holiday celebrations! A take-off on similar European egg-and-milk drinks, eggnog was a popular wintertime beverage in Colonial America. It was made in large quantities and was nearly always served for social occasions, especially on Christmas. There are two theories as to the origin of the name of this festive blend. In the Old World, the drink was traditionally made with wine. Early Americans gave it a new twist, using rum ("grog") instead. It is possible that the name "eggnog" was originally "egg" in "nog". Other experts believe that "nog" is short for "noggin", a small, carved wooden mug used to serve drinks in taverns. An egg drink served in a noggin might have become known as "eggnog".
