The first time I had eggnog I was in my 20’s and my husband couldn’t believe I had never tried it before. I have to admit the idea of an egg drink always turned me off. I tried it and dubbed it “Christmas in a drink” and although I’m still not a huge fan of drinking strait eggnog I love to use it as an ingredient.
