    My husband loves it. He will fit it into his daily calories and macros from now until Christmas.
    Sometimes, he mixes it with vanilla protein powder. Sometimes he mixes it with Jack Daniels.

    For me, no. I can't even stand the smell.

    Yes, it is delicious.

    I don't put alcohol in mine.

    There is a local dairy that makes great eggnog and I get a bottle or two of it every year.

    I used to make it at Christmas but I realized I only like it cut like half and half with alcohol, so I haven't bothered for a few years. I hate milk so I usually can't get past the mouthfeel unless it's way watered down (or rather, um, boozed down.)

    I do make thumbprint cookies with a nutmeg-y custard though and people always say they're eggnog cookies.

    Never had it but I do love a Baileys at Christmas! Just as equally high calorie. I will possibly still part-take this festive season!

    I love love love egg nog. It's my favorite thing to make/drink in the holiday season. It'll be blowing up my calories this year as well. I will be looking for almond milk varieties or making some myself this year, but it'll still be a lot of calories lol. We make it for both Thanksgiving and Christmas.

    Absolutely not, for the same reason that I can't do dairy milk, or bananas. It's like a mouthful of snot.

    I usually have some on Christmas eve and Christmas day...I usually make my own; commercial egg not is garbage. I don't need more than a cup or two over the holidays to last me the rest of the year.

    I use Alton Brown's recipe...

    Not really a fan anyway so I will pass. Although I could easily fit it in, I can think of much more delicious ways to spend my calories.

    It isn't something I ever really wanted. If someone offered me some I might drink a bit.

    I have a question for all of those making hurking noises in the distance. LOL. For those that have tried eggnog and can't stand it... Was it store bought or homemade? Because store bought is vile. Homemade is the only way to go. :wink:

    Not all store bought is vile. Some (like the Horizon I have in my picture earlier in this thread) is pretty good.

    agreed, store bought is vile, but homemade cut 50/50 with a good aged scotch whiskey is wonderful stuff (just realize that the one drink is half your daily calories!!).
