Not every palette likes, is appreciative of, or shares the sentiment of egg nog being the representative of the festive season drink ‘delicacy’ as, it is an ‘acquired’ taste and either you like it or your don’t.
The (non-alcoholic) thick, sweet, creamy beverage is typically made of milk, cream, sugar, eggs, nutmeg, cinnamon and other spices which could also take the place of many of our fall and winter delicacies and best served this way because it can actually substitute the sugars, creams, and milks that we typically use [for them].
Additionally (for our Cream of Wheat, Cream of Rice and Oatmeal lovers), instead of plain old water (or milk) why not make your filling, warm season breakfast delicacy starting off with egg not just before adding and stirring your Cream of Wheat, Cream of Rice, Oatmeal? As well, once into the bowl, the egg nog mixture not only made your Cream of Wheat, Cream of Rice and Oatmeal creamier, but it also takes the place of needing to add milk, brown sugar, or white sugar to your hot cereal delicacy!
If you use butter at all in your hot cereal, alls you have to do at this point is add a little spat of it and a little squig of egg nog atop of your finished bowl of hot cereal and viola! Your family or guests will be pleased!
