Eggnog (sometimes Egg Nog) is a traditional element of the Christmas Season. The exact origins of eggnog are unknown, but by the 1600's it was popular in Europe and England, where the aristocracy would drink the sweet, creamy mixture with Brandy or Wine. Due to the taxes on imports, American Colonists turned to Rum from the Caribbean. When the American Revolutionary War disrupted all coastal activity, domestic whiskey and bourbon was substituted, resulting in the recipes and varieties we all enjoy today.
