Recipes for How to Prepare Eggnog/Egg Nog Drinks
Eggnog is a popular winter beverage consisting of eggs, milk and spices. Served cold, it is commonly prepared with some form of alcohol as well (though only for adults!) Cognac, brandy, whiskey, rum or any dark liquor can be added to these chilled beverages to further spice up the flavor.
Eggnog is most often associated with Christmas and New Year's, however it holds no particular standard holiday affiliation.

These recipes are both easy and leave a lot of room for you to customize your eggnog by taste and preference. I hope you enjoy. Happy holidays!
For note: Eggnog can be prepared by cooking the mixture on the lowest possible heat setting on your stovetop. If you do prepare by cooking, only cook the eggnog for long enough that the mix coats the spoon and stir constantly while you are cooking. Use a quick read thermometer to watch the temperature and remove the mixture from heat as soon as it reaches 160 degrees. Then chill as per normal instructions.
If you prefer not to gently cook the eggnog, that's fine. Ensure that you have washed your hands before you begin preparing the eggnog either way.
