I am on my way to the kitchen to make this recipe for the third year. I have never liked eggnog from the store but this is scarey it's sooooo good. It's easy to drink more than you need so take care!
This was the most beautiful, most elegant and most quickly consumed beverage/treat at my dessert party yesterday afternoon. I have always been intimidated by egg nog, but my was this just the best ever. I used 1 quart of whipping cream and only 3 cups of Maker's Mark; no other liquor. I feel like this helped me cross over to the "other" side of hostessing! Thank you Martha! I have arrived!!
This is my third year making the eggnog, my associates at work look forward to the eggnog more then anything else during the holiday season. It is creamy and delicious and everyone loves the flavor. I serve a scoop of ice cream on the side which lessens the booz effect for those that so desire.
This is my third year making this eggnog. It is fantastic!!!!!!!!!!
This Christmas was my second year making this recipe. It really is so delicious. Cloud-like is true. If your only eggnog has come out of a paper container, get ready to have your mind blown. This is really more like a cappucino than the cloyingly thick nog you might be used to. Buy, yes, it is boozy so be careful. I only had about 1/2 cup of cognac, so I substituted more bourbon. Still very flavorful -- of course I always feel that way about bourbon, and there is only one kind: Maker's Mark. CHEERS!
