“‘Egg nog’ implies the existence of other, more secret types of nog”

"Eggnog” is a word of disputed etymology. “Egg” is clear, but “nog” might have meant “a kind of strong beer brewed in East Anglia” or “a small, carved wooden mug used to serve alcohol.” Many people are certain that there should be other nogs (besides egg).

I will not rest until I have my clamnog” was posted on Facebook by JG Pasterjak on December 25, 2017. “Egg Nog implies the existence of other Nogs” was posted on Twitter by GREGG ZOCCHI on September 29, 2018. “Eggnog implies other types of nog” was posted on Twitter by Lacy Wilder on November 29, 2018.

Wikipedia: Eggnog
Eggnog (/ˈɛɡˌnɒɡ/), historically also known as a milk punch or an egg milk punch when alcoholic beverages are added, is a rich, chilled, sweetened, dairy-based beverage. It is traditionally made with milk, cream, sugar, whipped egg yolks, and egg whites (which gives it a frothy texture, and its name). Distilled spirits such as brandy, rum, whisky or bourbon are often a key ingredient.

Etymology and origins
The origins, etymology, and the ingredients used to make original eggnog drinks are debated. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, nog was “a kind of strong beer brewed in East Anglia”. The first known use of the word “nog” was in 1693. Alternatively, nog may stem from noggin, a Middle English term for a small, carved wooden mug used to serve alcohol. However, the British drink was also called an Egg Flip, from the practice of “flipping” (rapidly pouring) the mixture between two pitchers to mix it. One dictionary lists the word “eggnog” as being an Americanism invented in 1765–75.

That they specifically call it EGGnog implies that there’s hundreds of other types of nogs being kept from us by a vast Big Nog® conspiracy. I will not rest until I have my clamnog.

Egg nog implies there are other, different kinds of nog and for the life of me I have never encountered even one.

The existence of egg nog implies other nogs exist. I find no proof of this either modernly or historically.  What is the truth?

Eggnog implies there were many flavors of nog before it but we somehow decided the best flavor was “egg.”
