Did you know that eggnog is a popular festive drink in the United States of America? There was even a riot called the Eggnog Riot that started when eggnog was banned in New York in 1826!

More recently, non-acholic eggnog has become a staple of Christmas celebrations, with Americans drinking over 58 million kilograms each year and Christmas Eve now being named National Eggnog Day.
