Since it is the holidays, I tend to crave eggnog. I usually don’t need much – just a few sips or a small glass satisfies my craving. And when I say eggnog, I am talking about the kind you get from Publix or Safeway in a cardboard milk carton. It doesn’t have any alcohol added (yet).
I decided to look for eggnog at Spar (our grocery store here in Vienna) the other day. I knew it would be “Eier”-something. Since Eier is eggs in German. But I couldn’t find it. Finally, I found a kind with liquor in a basket and I figured I could use that to ask someone that worked there where the eggnog was ohne likÃ¶r.
The woman that worked at the grocery store laughed at me! She said you can’t get eggnog in Austria without alcohol! So I decided to try the EierlikÃ¶r. It was a little too strong for my taste. But it was fun to try and the bottle was only â‚¬7.
Maybe I will try making my own. Or I could add some cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla to a glass of milk and maybe that will taste pretty yummy!
