Holiday Greetings 
I am currently a graduate student at the California School of the Arts creating a Holiday Greeting card that will be sent out to alumni, faculty, students and potential clients and visitors. the topic of the greeting card is a small infomercial about the history of Eggnog. I need someone to read a small script and send me their work. As I already said I am a Student, and relatively poor. However I can pay 50$ for the recording. The faster this can get done, the better as well. Thank you for looking.

Script Details

Please submit a short custom demo. 
Eggnog, a frozen alcoholic custard made with nutmeg, cream, milk, eggs and alcohol, has been a staple tradition of holiday merriment for many families for as long as most can remember. Alas, there is more to this festive drink then one may realize.

The type of alcohol used varies from recipe to recipe, however the original recipe calls for Brandy and hails from East Angila, England. Not yet a holiday drink, Eggnog had its roots in the aristocracy as a social drink enjoyed by the elite. In fact, The word nog refers to a type of wooden cup used to consume alcohol in the 17th century. In 1820 author Pierce Egan wrote an article entitled “ Life of London: or the days and nights of Jerry Hawthorne and his elegant friend Corinthina Tom” which highlighted his version of Eggnog that he called the “Tom and Jerry” which eventually influenced the same names of a very famous cat and mouse.

Furthermore, with the westward migration from Europe to the new world, Eggnog began to see changes with the intrusion of pirates. Who insisted on using Rum instead of Brandy. However George Washington was such a fan of eggnog that he created his own version with rye whisky, rum and Sherry. This drink would be given to all cadets at West Point Military Base during the holidays until prohibition began to take root in america and the superintendent denied them access to the drink. This act lead to one of the largest military riots in history and caused headlines and interest in the drink. Due to its proximity to the holidays and tradition within the army, Eggnog became associated as the holiday drink we enjoy today.
