Omck4heroes: All mixed together in a 12oz glass
pinkbandgeek: Were any of the founding fathers sober at any point in the process of making America?
tehmlem: People in pretty much all of history must have had a crazy alcohol tolerance. Like how much of American history alone was pulled off by sloppy drunk people?
Just1morefix: 2 1/4 pints of “Shall we get fucked up Martha and my dear friend Hamilton?”
satanicpuppy: The only part of that that’s untraditional is the sherry…And I’d use bourbon instead of rye.
Otherwise, that’s how it’s made. I have some right now that’s been sitting in the fridge for a month, just waiting for X-mas. I use [the Alton Brown recipe](https://altonbrown.com/eggnog-recipe/):
12 large egg yolks
1 pound sugar
1 pint half-n-half
1 pint whole milk
1 pint heavy cream
1 cup Jamaican rum
1 cup cognac
1 cup bourbon
1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg (plus more for serving)
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
Combine the yolks and sugar, then combine everything else, and slowly beat the sugar/yolk mixture into it. It’ll last for-fucking-ever with all the booze in it.
GunsGirlsGoodtimes: TIL George Washington went hard
kjhgsdflkjajdysgflab: If you don’t include all the ingredients, the volume of the ones you do include is irrelevant god dammit.
For instance, if this including 100gallons of milk, it would be a hell of a lot different than if it was 1 pint of milk.
thxxx1337: And a quarter pint of store bought egg nog
JitGoinHam: He was the Sam Jackson of his time.
“IT’LL GET YOU DRUNK!”
boboblobb: Today this drink is now known as “Alcohol”
TheOfficialJonSnow: Damn, I didn’t know G-Dubs liked to get twisted like that.
TogetherInABookSea: It’s the wooooorst time of the year to be allergic to eggs.
So many delicious eggy things to eat. I’ve never had alcoholic egg nog. Also, I adore devilled eggs. *Sigh*
zedsdeadbby: Interestingly enough George wasn’t that big of a drinker. He’d have a few glasses with dinner and stuff but he drank much less than most people. He also hated when people got too drunk. http://www.mountvernon.org/george-washington/biography/washington-stories/distilling-the-truth-george-washington-and-alcohol/
Frptwenty: Given the state of General Washington’s teeth, we can also surmise that a large amount of the finest Barbados cane sugar went into the nog.
Marmite_Badger: Yeah but how much of the end product do you get?
bolanrox: god bless!
davelm42: George was not fucking around.
Zaku0083: [I thought this channel had done a video on that, but it turned out to be a drink called “Orange Fool” instead. If you are interested in period cooking this guy does a lot of great videos.](https://www.youtube.com/user/jastownsendandson/featured)
RabbitRobotica: He called it “Long Island Egg Nog”
Fopdoodle_Pancake: It must have been…EGGCELENT
Bad_Spellar: That’s not egg nog, that’s the recipe for a wopatooie
baconsnotworthit: Well, it’s probably better to save the eggs for breakfast anyway.
manitobot: I don’t why, but whenever they have colonial recipes, I think about how they get there i.e. Jamaican rum.
ThisIsHowToDrink: Love a good eggnog, I posted a few recipes myself.
One fun fact about eggnog is that it’s relegation to being solely a “Christmas” drink is a more recent thing. At one time it was drank year round, and it wouldn’t be odd to walk up to a bar and order a glass. Articles and books from the 1800’s describe it as being perfect to cool off with on a hot summers day.
arabscarab: Mount Vernon Iced Tea
Krishnath_Dragon: And one egg.
Nel45788: Que drunk guy falling down stairs gif:::
flood_bart: GW had a somewhat famous enslaved chef named Hercules. Likely his recipe.
Kindred359: But no eggs…..hmmmmm……
O-shi: _Saves post_
280394433708491: Not much of a drinker but definitely going to have to make this.
cobaltbluedw: TIL no one knows WTF egg nog is.
oldgreg11: He was the 26th president of the United States. He can make it however her pleases.
