    Bergy's Note:

    This is a great eggnog with or without alcohol. I put in the alcohol! It is from "Company's Coming for Christmas. Salute!

      Yum! Yum!! Now this is EGG nog. It's nicely thick and deliciously creamy. And the nog is pretty nice too. We used bourbon, rather than whiskey, though. Will have to try whiskey next time.

      This recipe is incomplete. It never tells you when to combine the ingredients together. I found it very confusing and I pride myself of making everything from scratch for over 10 years. This stuff is POTENT as well, which may not necessarily be a bad thing. Please revise the procedure instructions and let the others know when to combine all three bowls filled. Thank you,

      I have made the requested changes to the steps and apologize if you found the recipe confusing. I appreciate you pointing this out to me however you didn't say if you liked the eggnog or not.
