How to Freeze Eggnog

Save

Eggnog is a popular winter drink that consists primarily of eggs, cream and sugar. It originated in England in the 1600s and was generally consumed by upper class citizens. Today, eggnog comes in many different varieties and can be enjoyed by anybody. Since eggnog is generally only available at stores during the winter holidays, many people like to stock up and save it to drink throughout the year. Since eggnog contains dairy and eggs, it must be frozen if you want to store it for more than a couple of weeks.
