Thats all I wanted to say.................
Well.

I love it and cant wait for this time of year to git me some.
We have 2 great dairies near by so I dont bother to make my own and I enjoy it with some Spiced Rum and a bit of Brandy.

Anyone else feel the same way ??

Replace that brandy with a little bourbon and youve got a deal.

I actually only just discovered Eggnog a week ago. Before then, the opportunity to try it had never really arisen.

It is fantastic, spiced at night, and not so much durring the day (can't very well be drinking and be taking care of a newborn at the same time What a Face ).

The other day I told my wife to buy some. She brought home a quart from the supermarket. I never had any bourbon in the house before, so this was going to be my first spiked 'nog. A little shot of Maker's Mark in there and - BAM!! - that was FANTASTIC. It's almost enough to prevent me from saying "Bah, Humbug!" to the whole lot of the holiday season.

I've drank it my whole life, but never with any alcohol in it. Tried it for the first time the other night with some capt. morgan in it. It was - meh. Didn't think of trying it with bourbon... that's next!

replace that bourbon with a little Tangler Ridge Canadian Rye and your in Heaven.

Sidenote: If you drink it too fast in large volumes don't worry, tastes as good going down as it does coming up! drunken

There is a tobacco I found while looking around the interwebs today called egg nog. Thought it was kind of unique. http://pipesandcigars.com/hehoeggnogo.html

Making it is just too damn much work.
I'm real fond of our local dairy, Kleinpeter.
The only measuring I have to do is
half Nog, half Jack Daniel's. cheers

EGG NOG Empty
PostSubject: Best hard nog i've had   EGG NOG EmptyTue Mar 24, 2009 7:37 pm

Made some of this last october to have it for thanksgiving and christmas.

Just used the bourbon, rum and brandy bottles to put it in. It's pretty gosh darn delicious. Use good brandy or cognac though, bad brandy flavor hampers the deliciousness. And it gets better with age, our last bottle only lasted about a month and a half, but it was the best.

Here's the recipe so you don't have to click, from chow.com:

INGREDIENTS
For the eggnog:

* 12 large eggs
* 2 cups granulated sugar
* 1 cup heavy cream
* 1 quart (4 cups) whole milk
* 1 liter (about 4 cups) bourbon, such as Jim Beam
* 1/2 cup Myers’s dark rum
* 1/2 to 1 cup good Cognac or other brandy
* Pinch kosher salt
* 1 whole nutmeg

To serve (optional):

* 10 egg whites
* 1 1/2 cups heavy cream

1. Separate egg yolks and whites. (Reserve egg whites for another use, such as Egg-White Frittata with Shrimp, Tomato, and Spinach.) Combine yolks and sugar in a large mixing bowl and whisk until well blended and creamy.
2. Add cream, milk, bourbon, rum, Cognac (use the good stuff), and salt, then stir.

3. Bottle it right away and refrigerate it until it’s ready. (An old liquor bottle works great, as do 22-ounce bail-top bottles, available in brewing supply stores. My grandfather keeps the eggnog in the garage for 3 weeks, stirring occasionally, then bottles it—but aging in the garage is not recommended because the temperature can fluctuate.)

4. It’s traditional to wrap the bottle in aluminum foil, shiny side out, together with a fresh nut of nutmeg tucked into the foil for grating later. Keep refrigerated for at least 3 weeks, or up to a year if you can.


To serve (optional):

1. I serve aged eggnog on the rocks with some freshly grated nutmeg on top. If you want to serve the eggnog in the traditional way, pour it into a punch bowl. In separate bowls, whip 10 egg whites and 1 1/2 cups heavy cream to soft peaks and fold them into the eggnog. Serve in punch cups, garnished with freshly grated nutmeg.
