Go easy on the nutmeg. In large quantities it can be hallucinogenic!

Bourbon based egg nog?? Sacrilege, I say.

You want more spice, use spiced rum, otherwise a good amber rum is preferred.

Bourbon makes everything better.

Those hosers probably like maple syrup in their egg nog or something.

It's that time of year again. For the second year in a row Southern Comfort Traditional Egg Nog is the best IMO..

For relaxing times... Make it egg nog time.

Seems like they would. Although this particular type may be regional.

Haven't tapped into the 'Nog this season yet. Mostly because here in Florida, it is hard to find decent Egg Nog. I agree with many posters about Hood being the best. In the carton, of course. But I don't think it is available outside of the northeast.

When I was a kid, we had a dairy that delivered it in glass bottles. Nothing will ever come close. But I'm going to have to get in on some tomorrow morning.

Thank you for this thread. It makes my diet even harder.

Ah, what a simply fascinating thread; a thread which celebrates the Yuletide season and salutes unselfconscious (nostalgic) greed for a much loved staple. I love it.

And, for the record, I have yet to taste egg-nog; clearly, a treat is in store, I am agog at the thought of getting to sample egg nog.

Is it the consistency or the taste?

Love Nog - Also check out Tom and Jerry's - the latter are a little more regional but very very good.

I love the nog, it just doesn't like me. This makes an appearance or two at our house instead and I still dilute it with some plain soy or rice milk.

I used to love that stuff as a kid. Now, it's disgusting. I'll buy it sometimes for the sake of nostalgia, but it's not as good as I remember. Either I grew up, or they don't make good eggnog anymore.

My favorite brand was from Kroger in North Carolina. It was in a red container with diagonal cursive text.

I only remember fragments of my childhood vividly, so I must have been very young. I can still describe the interior of my mothers car from when I was still car-seat age. Creeps her out and I love it.

One thing I will say with certainty is I never liked the fake stuff. Thick milk with egg nog flavor. Usually called holiday nog. Absolutely disgusting!

Despite my previous five year-old post in this thread, I do not think I have actually had egg nog since that time.

May have to change that this upcoming day, though.

I used to like it. That stuff has too many calories though. Haven't touched it since I stopped drinking milk years ago.

Yes.

I don't know what it is, but I really can't make myself like it. After a few sips I can sip no more.
