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

The tradition of sharing eggnog with those near and dear originated in England centuries ago. 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.

Just in the nick of time for holiday celebrations, this quick to prepare recipe for Spiked Eggnog Punch is a luscious crowd-pleaser. And using this Anchor Hocking Presence 18 piece Punch Bowl Set to serve guests adds a vintage touch to the celebration. The cups may be attached to the bowl for style and practicality—and will encourage them to have a cup of cheer.

So go ahead and indulge with family and friends in a festive potion that’s mingled with seasonal flavors. After all, this is a luscious way to celebrate the time-honored taste of the holidays.
