Sometimes, people compare eggnog's taste to that of custard ice cream. They are both creamy and rich, with a spicy overtone because of cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove. In the old days, before we had electricity and refrigeration, eggnog was called milk punch and was a drink served only by the wealthy due to the expense of sugar and brandy.
