For those of you who'd like a great eggnog recipe...try this one:
12 cups heavy cream (or combination heavy cream, light cream, and/or half and half)
2 dozen egg yolks
2 cups sugar
Additions: Freshly grated nutmeg
2 cups liquor of your choice: My preferences are a combination of bourbon, peach brandy, and dark rum
Bring cream to a simmer in a large saucepot. Whisk yolks and sugar in a large bowl. Gradually, whisk in half of hot cream. Return mixture to pot. Stir over medium-low heat until mixture thickens to a custard-like consistency; about 5 minutes. Do not boil. Strain mixture into a bowl. Cool; chill.
Add liquor and nutmeg.
