Southerner's Specialty Eggnog

READY IN: 8mins
Recipe by Douglas J. Renze

IMHO this is the single best eggnog recipe I've ever had. I've had it with both cognac and rum, never with brandy or whisky, though I suspect Jack Daniels would be wonderful for this.

This is the best eggnog I have ever had. It's good with fat-free half & half, too. The writer suggested Jack Daniels might be good in it, but it is especially good with 1/2 cup of light rum (preferably Bacardi) and 1/2 cup of Crown Royal. Delicious!
