A bowl of eggnog

Fleur Delacour: "Eez eet over? Thank goodness, what an 'orrible –"
Arthur Weasley: "Shall we have a nightcap, then? Who wants egg-nog?"
Arthur Weasley suggesting egg-nog to prevent Fleur Delacour from disparaging his wife's favourite singer[src]

Egg-nog was a rich and creamy drink made from milk, sugar, whipped eggs and often liquor such as brandy or rum.[1] It was traditionally drunk during the Christmas season.[1]

At the Christmas Feast at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in 1992, Albus Dumbledore lead those present in his favourite carols, and Rubeus Hagrid got progressively louder with each glass of egg-nog he drank.[2]

During the Christmas gathering at The Burrow in 1996, Arthur Weasley hastily asked if anyone wanted egg-nog to prevent Fleur Delacour from finishing a negative assessment of the song "A Cauldron Full of Hot, Strong Love" by Molly Weasley's favourite singer, Celestina Warbeck.[3] He returned a short time later with the egg-nog, handing a glass to Remus Lupin while he was busy talking to Harry Potter.[3]
