Eggnog

Eggnog


Need I say more?
















That ain't no Christmas martini.  That's eggnog.  Oooooh yeah!  It's the seasonal beverage of choice here at Dry Humor Daily!  Eggnog is one of the top 5 best things about the period of time between Halloween and New Years.  And it's worth every thick, flavorful, all-around indulging calorie contained within!  (I'm not exactly sure what the other 4 top five best things are, but whatever they are, eggnog is up there with them!)

I'm a fan of Braums eggnog.  It has the best blend of spices in my opinion.  And I make special trips to get it.  (And let me tell you, it is special, because our Braums is a HUGE pain in the butt to get to.)  Anyway, my favorite, however, is the homemade variety of eggnog.  It's hard to find people you know who make it and will let you have some.  It's even harder to make your own batch and find other people who will help you finish it.  Why?  For some reason, folks get grossed out by raw egg yolks.  (You see, store-bought eggnog is most likely less than 1% raw egg.  It's delicious, but not as delicious.)

I don't know why some people make such a fuss about eating raw egg yolks.  At least with eggnog, you can add enough liquor ("nog") to kill any of those harmful, yolk-riding diseases within.  And it makes everyone at the Christmas party a little more social, if you know what I mean!  :)

I was just sipping on some eggnog myself last night. I absolutely love it. I've never had homemade before, though. I don't know anyone that makes it.

Hehe. Eggnog is one of those things that just makes me happy - probably the holiday spirit. :)

This is only one of the reasons we keep chickens. Yummy!

One year my roommates and I bought eggnog with the liquor mixed in and that stuff could have taken blood off asphalt. I choked it down because I spent money on it, but it was definitely not my favourite eggnog experience (at least until I had had 2 or 3 glasses)

I like the soy egg nog. Yes, I am one of those people who do not enjoy the idea of eating raw eggs. I'm not training to be a boxer, here, I'm just trying to get my drink on.

I have to admit...I've NEVER had eggnog. Mybe this year I will have to be adventurous and try something new.

Gosh, I haven't had eggnog in three or four years. How sad. I will rectify that ASAP!
