E is for Eggnog

Standard

For the purposes of this argument let us assume that Google does not exist (divide by 0 in 3…2…1…). What exactly is eggnog anyway? Does anyone know? What’s it made of? Like my gran once said about sausages, I’m probably better off not knowing, but hey! (Apparently) it’s a holiday must. Which I have STILL not sampled. And it is entirely possible that I will NOT be sampling. It’s a drink and it has the word “egg” on its name. I’m sorry but it doesn’t sound very promising. I’ll take my chances with the sausage if that’s okay with you. That being said, the Eggnog Latte that Starbucks has been rocking lately is pretty cool. Tastes like Ferrero.

 

-one quick Google search later-

“Eggnog is a sweetened dairy-based beverage traditionally made with milk and/or cream, sugar, and whipped eggs. Spirits such as brandy, rum or bourbon are often added. The finished serving is often garnished with a sprinkling of ground cinnamon or nutmeg.”

Riiiiight….

Thanks Wikipedia. You pulled through as usual. And no, I’m not trying it. It has raw eggs! Gross! Jeez, isn’t there a seasonal delicacy whose list of ingredients won’t make me swear off eating and drinking? –catches sight of mulled wine- Excuse me for a moment.

 

P.S.

Fruitcake is something else I don’t understand…
