Eggnog is one of those staples that should be voted off the holiday table. Really, is that warm, thick, egg-y beverage the best thing to drink with your holiday meal? Especially in this Miami heat?

Eggnog originated in England and was brought over to America by the colonists. Originally made with eggs, milk, brandy or wine, the colonists switched over to rum when the English crown decided to tax brandy and wine. Now some recipes call for rum, some for bourbon, some for rum and bourbon.

If you insist on serving eggnog at your holiday party, do everyone a favor and stay off that syrupy store-bought carton stuff. The effort you invest in making it yourself will pay off.

Here's a video that shows you how.


Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
