Christmas Drinks

Having talked about Mulled Wine got me thinking about Christmas drinks.  What people really love to drink in England (at least the people I socialise with) are these: 

  • Christmas Mead
  • Traditional Mead
  • Mulled Wine
  • Apricot Brandy
  • Sherry
Then other alcoholic drinks like beer and wine etc...... but no egg nog! :(

I really would love to try some egg nog this Christmas and as I can't buy it, I am hoping to make it.  The only thing is does really taste of eggs? Also which recipe should I use? I would prefer a recipe where you get to warm it a little just because of Salmonella.  I did say to my husband the other day that many people have it with raw eggs and they are fine.  So then that made me wonder if the alcohol has something to do with it? Does anyone know? 

What I have heard is that egg nog is like Marmite, you'll either love it or hate it! Hope I love it :)
