I like it when appropriately spiked. But I would never actually make it since it requires raw eggs. I buy the stuff from the store that has been pasteurized. Salmonella is not my idea of a fun way to spend the holidays.
My husband loves it -- has been scowering the stores for it so he can start drinking it again. He gets the "lightly" pasteurized version -- he says the other ones tend to lose their flavor or something....
I'm with Justin. I love the stuff. But the way I tend to pack on the pounds anymore, I have to pretty much abstain. You'd be hard pressed to find a heavier drink (480 calories per cup from Oberweis - a local dairy). Well... maybe there is something heavier; a former co-worker told me about these huge, 3000 calorie peanut butter milkshakes he used to enjoy in New Orleans...
Anyone know the origin of eggnog? I suspect it was not created by the pilgrams. If I had to guess it would be northern European country.
We have something like eggnog in Holland. Mind you, we only know the alcoholic version! In Dutch, we call the stuff 'advocaat' which is also the Dutch word for lawyer. I haven't the faintest idea why they named it that. Also, as much as I would like to claim that we invented the stuff, I am not sure if we did.

>Oberweis Ah, Chicagoland! I was very disappointed to come across an astrological forecast that specifically asked me to stay away from eggnog during the last week of this month
