Eggnog Day

Updated on December 8, 2015

Eggnog Day And Christmas Eve Are On The Same Day

Since Dec. 24th is Eggnog Day and Christmas Eve, Eggnog makes the perfect punch to make some wonderful holiday toasts with. Growing up, Eggnog was a part of my family's holiday tradition and I still like to make a batch for my family.

Eggnog's origins are iffy, we don't know exactly where this drink came from. It is probably from Europe, somewhere. In 1826 an event called the "Eggnog Riot" was a big mess that included the court martial of 20 cadets and an enlisted soldier. They were sneaking whiskey into their barracks to mix up a batch of eggnog for Christmas. Thank goodness making eggnog is much easier for us than it was for them!

Here are some delicious nog recipes for you to try out this holiday.

Coquito - Try Some Puerto Rican Eggnog

Coquito is a refreshing drink and I love it as much as my tradtional Eggnog - maybe even a little bit more! You will need coconuts, eggs, condensed milk, evaporated milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, light rum and you can find out how to mix these ingredients together at Coquito Recipe.

Cuban Eggnog - Sort Of

Yes, there's also a Cuban version of eggnog, and you can get the Cuban Eggnog Recipe Here. It looks like the idea of making an egg drink mixed with some liquor (or not) is world wide. For a different taste you might want to try out this Cuban recipe.
