Eggnog Recipe

"Eggnog (or egg nog) is a sweetened dairy-based beverage made with milk, cream, sugar, beaten eggs (which gives it a frothy texture), and flavoured with ground cinnamon and nutmeg; alcoholic versions also exist with the addition of various liquors, such as rum, brandy, or whisky. Eggnog is popular in North America. Eggnog is associated with winter celebrations such as Christmas and New Year's. Commercial, non-alcoholic eggnog is available around Christmas time and the winter holidays in North American grocery stores and this variant is available all year round in Australian stores. While the origins of eggnog are debated, it may have originated from posset (a medieval European beverage made with hot milk)"

I have never tasted eggnog before but the drink looks delicious! At last year's Christmas party, they had eggnog but unfortunately I couldn't drink it because it had liquor in it. So I though why not make my own non-alcoholic eggnog?

I tried looking for non-alcoholic eggnog recipe and voila I found one :)
