Eggnog is a thick, rich drink made by blending milk, cream, sugar, eggs, spices and alcohol. It's exact lineage is debated among culinary historians, although most agree that it probably derived from posset. Posset was a drink of hot spiced milk curdled with wine or ale, popular in Britain during medieval times.
Today, eggnog is enjoyed during the holiday period, largely in America and Canada where the climate is more conducive to rich, warm drinks. But even though it's hot in Australia at this time of year, that doesn't mean we can't enjoy it too.
