While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday and the most delicious finds on TV.

December 24 is National Eggnog Day, and we’re sporting the ‘nog mustache to prove it.

Can’t get eggnog out of your noggin? No worries - we’ve got some cheery recipes for you to try. And if that’s not enough, you can read all about the boozy beverage and its humble beginnings.

Ho-ho-hopefully you’re ready to whip up a tall glass and enjoy the festive buzz it leaves you with. Just keep an eye on grandma - she tends to cross paths with wandering reindeer after a few glasses.
