If you like eggnog but are too lazy to make your own, today is your lucky day as I've found not one but two eggnog roundups for you to read and consider when doing your holiday food shopping:
New York Magazine's Taste Test: Eggnog sampled seven brands of eggnog and liked two (Organic Valley and Southern Comfort), as well as sharing the Waterfront Ale House's tried and true recipe.
Slate's Which eggnog is best? tried six brands of eggnog and two online recipes, one round sans alcohol and one with. Organic Valley did just okay this time (Southern Comfort didn't make an appearance) but the real winner was this Epicurious eggnog recipe.
If you'd rather make your own eggnog and, like me, prefer an Alton Brown recipe to any other, here's the Good Eats eggnog recipe. There are instructions for both cooked and uncooked versions, so you can make whichever you prefer.
They've also got an eggnog ice cream recipe up but if waiting 10 hours to eat the fruits of your labor seems excessive to you, you can also purchase seasonal limited edition pints of Häagen-Dazs and Edy's at the grocery or corner deli. Baskin-Robbins has eggnog as a seasonal flavor in-store but no love from Ben & Jerry's.
Still can't get enough eggnog? Starbucks offers Eggnog Lattes this time of year (you can always make your own version of it at home) but I think my favorite eggnog product has got to be Philosophy's old-fashioned eggnog 3-in-1 shampoo, body wash & bubble bath. $18 on their site or at Sephora, you'll get clean and smell good, and best of all: no risk of salmonella!
