You can’t beat eggnog laced with spirits for a festive and seasonal libation. Hounds like their eggnog spiked with rum, bourbon, or brandy, or a combination thereof. And a grating of fresh nutmeg makes a big difference, says MC Slim JB.
Homemade eggnog is a whole different animal from the store-bought variety. This recipe, from bartending blogger Jeffrey Morgenthaler, is “good and easy,” according to sku. ShadowedOne likes Alton Brown’s recipe. And davis_sq_pro had success with CHOW’s aged Best Eggnog, which keeps up to a year in the fridge due to a high level of alcohol (it’s “just a touch on the fiery side,” says davis_sq_pro).
