Although some continue to debate the origin of eggnog, most culinary historians agree this spiced and spiked milk-and-egg-yolk mixture originated in early medieval England. It was originally called “posset,” a milky, ale-like drink served hot. In the 13th century, monks drank posset made with eggs and figs. The wealthy used milk, eggs and sherry in their posset toasts to prosperity and good health. Eggnog became a Christmas favorite when it crossed to the American colonies in the 1700s.
