On Drinking Egg Nog

I think we only drink Egg Nog around the holidays because it would kill us if we drank it all year. My parents sent me a bottle the other day. I'm enjoying it immensely, but it's thicker than half-and-half and definitely has more calories. It's like a butter-flavored milkshake that's spiked with booze. I'm torn between hording and sharing. On one hand it's unsafe for any human to drink a liter of heavy cream, but on the other it only arrives once a year. The name Egg Nog is only half accurate. It tastes nothing like eggs, but if I had to invent a word to describe its texture, I could never come up with something more suitable than Nog.
