Eggnog Recipe

This quick and easy eggnog recipe is a cinch to prepare. I was baffled when a food editor from a magazine approached me to design an eggnog recipe. But after trying and testing so many different variations of this eggnog recipe, I soon discovered for myself why eggnog is so popular.

I received the go-ahead to publish this eggnog recipe months after the magazine published this eggnog recipe and told me it was a big success with their readers. I will be honest and admit that I have forgotten about eggnog but was too happy to make and taste it again.

And now, as with the magazine, the recipe is a big success with our website visitors and I am happy with the results. We are happy about your visit and would like to know what you think of this easy eggnog recipe. Please share your thoughts or take a snapshot and tag us on Instagram @cookingcatdotcom

Thanks and happy Christmas.

Did you know? Eggnog is believed to have descended from a drink called a "posset," which consisted of hot curdled milk, ale or wine, and spices. More expensive ingredients like eggs, sherry, and figs were added to the recipe later on as the drink became popular among monks and the wealth 5.00
