Bumping this fun thread because I had some yummy homemade eggnog the other night. 

Fresh egg yolks blended with a little sugar, softly beaten egg whites, add a little half-and-half and milk.  Goslings dark rum from Bermuda this time.  Freshly grated nutmeg on top.  That says Christmas to me. 

Of course it's rich, so I only have one glass, and usually only once a season.

I just had a flashback:  egg nog latte.  While I'm not big on flavored coffee, I think Starbucks offered this a few years ago, not sure if they still do.  Strong espresso with steamed egg nog.  Not bad, but I wouldn't want more than one.

Haven't found any eggnog-flavored coffee, but McDonalds does have a good eggnog milkshake this month.

I had an eggnog latte at Caribou last night.

Mmm, I love egg nog.  I bought some low-fat egg nog and had some with rum while wrapping presents.  Thanks for reminding me about the McDonald's egg nog shakes, Marcia.  I'll have to stop by for one!  8)

I bought a container of each -- low-fat eggnog and regular eggnog. Wonder which one I'll be drinking tomorrow?  ::)

I'm going to go pour some now! Though, in a nod to holiday fitness goals, I'm having the low-fat kind.

Now that I have had the homemade kind, I doubt there's any going back to the store-bought.  And I can get by just fine on once or twice a year :).

Starbucks today did have an eggnog-flavored coffee today, but I ordered peppermint hot cocoa instead.

  My thoughts on eggnog, are related to my thoughts on mince pie.  Yukkie..
