Two years ago, Slate.com decided to go out and find the best eggnog. They rated six store bought nogs and two homemade ones. Surprisingly, they hated almost everything they tasted and claimed that the only real winner was the homemade eggnog recipe from epicurious.
"Eggnog is not likely to foster good will, nor holiday cheer amongst your guests. If you simply must nog, go homemade. There is no substitute."
I personally think their review is flawed, because of course the homemade one is going to taste better. Its got fresh ingredients and I'm sure it was made with love. Read the review yourself and then tell us your thoughts. What do you think is the best nog out there?
