Eggnog Question

Dear Heather,
It's the holidays--I have so many questions for you. First of all, what time of day is appropriate to start drinking eggnog?
Austin, TX

Dear Will,
Because eggnog has eggs in it, and eggs are a standard breakfast food, it's fine to drink this beverage upon waking. Most enjoy it at cocktail hour or after dinner, though, as a dessert drink. As a general rule, the holidays are a time when normal expectations are relaxed, so feel free to enjoy eggnog any time of day.
