The Origins Of Eggnog 

Many believe that eggnog originates in Europe, as early as the 13th century. British medieval monks were known to drink a warm ale punch with eggs and figs called "posset," which over time, evolved into various other milk and wine drinks. 

A few centuries later, sherry became a popular ingredient to use in the eggy beverage as a nod to one's health and prosperity. It was also a sign of wealth because eggs, sherry and milk were scarce and hard to acquire. 

As time went on, others began to adapt the drink with less expensive alcohols such as run, brandy and wine. The rum version became a staple for people of all statuses. 
Today, it's a holiday staple that's enjoyed with and without alcohol. And while you could easily add a little infused MCT Oil to store-bought eggnog, there's something about making your own from scratch that is so delicious and satisfying.
