|The sad truth about|
our beloved Egg Nog
You see, eggnog was not found in the pantry of the servant, nor even in the store of the merchant. In Great Britain back in the good ol' times there weren't no refrigeration. Uh-oh! That means that only the rich aristocracy could afford expensive dairy products that were very difficult to keep fresh. You can know when you top of your glass that this is literally a drink for kings. In fact, during the 1800's it was to be made in very large amounts for noble and aristocratic parties and served cold. One could even say that it was improper to throw a Christmas party without a good amount of eggnog ready for the late-night British partiers.
