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! :)
