NEW ORLEANS – When it’s time to take a sip of the season, you better belly up to a New Orleans bar for the beverage of choice.

Of course, it’s eggnog.

A traditional milky mix of milk and eggs and sugar.

It’s primarily a punch.

And WGNO Good Morning New Orleans features reporter Bill Wood reminds you that it’s the kind of beverage that packs a punch.

Ever wonder where the “nog” in eggnog comes from?

Here’s a little holiday history.

Some spice.

And a little life.

It’s in the French Quarter at Zhang Bistro where they’re on a roll with an egg.

Not just the nog.

They’re adding an egg roll to the recipe.

And some more history.

It’s where the egg roll comes from.

And it’s probably not the place you would have picked.
