Eggnog is a divisive drink around the holidays, almost as much as pumpkin spice. While one side advocates pouring all the eggnog down the drain, the other dumps it in their daily coffee and drenches French toast with it. This year, we set out to sort the good eggs from the bad with the Cap Times’ first recorded eggnog tasting. Food editor Lindsay Christians made four homemade versions as controls, then went to six Madison grocery stores and bought 13 premade eggnogs.
