I have a tale to tell about this eggnog. I found the recipe in the summer, and I filed it away for more appropriate weather, knowing that there’d be a wintertime function where it’d be appropriate.
Of course a wintertime event came (the cookie party that I can’t stop talking about for some reason), and I was prepared. I bought extra eggs; I bought extra milk. I was quite excited– I’d never had homemade eggnog before, and I really like eggnog. The store bought stuff seems to get a bad rap in some circles, but regardless of the questionable ingredients they have, I like the thick, sweet libation. Of course homemade would be even better, so I had no hesitations.
