Eggnog history – posset, egg flip, coquito, rompope, biblia con pisco, biersuppe

Looking for ideas for leftover eggnog I stumbled across the history of eggnog. This site seems to be the one all other sites reference.

One theory is it is a shortening of “egg-and-grog" or an even further shortening of drinking egg and grog in a mug called a noggin.

In the title are eggnogs in other countries ... rompope (Mexico), coquito (Puerto Rico), biblia con pisco (Peru), biersuppe (Germany). Are there other countries that produce some sort of eggnog?

Here’s ideas for using excess eggnog on the home cooking board.
