    1. Eggnog dates to 14 th century, when medieval Englishmen enjoyed a hot cocktail known as posset. Posset didn’t contain eggs. The Oxford English Dictionary defines posset as “a drink made of hot milk curdled with ale, wine, or the like, often sweetened and spiced.Over the years eggs joined in on the festive fun.
    2.According to some etymologists, eggnog comes from the word “noggin,” which referred to small wooden mugs that were often used to serve a drink that resembled eggnog. Others propose a similar story, but explain that eggnog comes from the Norfolk slang word “nog”, to refer to the strong ales that were often served in these mugs.
