Southerner's Specialty Eggnog

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 a fantastic eggnog recipe! We used egg substitute and left out the alcohol and we can't get enough. My son is an eggnog-aholic (he said when he gets to Heaven he's going to drink eggnog every day all day long) and he was VERY pleased. I love that it isn't so thick! Thank you for a new Christmas tradition for our family!

    This was amazing! So easy and so good. The texture is really light, not like that thick commercial stuff.

    I changed this recipe up a little bit to cut the fat, calories and cholesterol. I used 12 egg whites and only 4 yolks. I substituted Splenda for the sugar and I used fat free half-and-half. I also used Christian Brothers Brandy. It was wonderful! Thanks!
