Gather your loved ones, stir up a creamy concoction, and savor a cup of spiked eggnog punch brimming with old-fashioned goodness.

Served in small cups known as noggins, the rich beverage was spiked with a variety of alcoholic beverages. The custom continues today, and is made easier and safer, by simply picking up cartons of pasteurized eggnog from the supermarket instead of making it from scratch.
