This is my sister's recipe and it is absolutely delicious. Even people who say they don't like egg nog come back for seconds. I leave the bourbon out when I make this, but I included it below as it was part of the original recipe. Be careful it packs a punch. Enjoy!

This is fabulous. I scaled the recipe down to 1/3 and I made it without the bourbon and it turned out great. I think the bourbon would have made this way too strong and thinned it out too much. This is very thick and rich. I did add nutmeg too. Yumlicious!
