Don's Friend Tonja's Cousin Toni's Boyfriend's Grandmother's Eggnog
With a few minor changes - this is my grandmothers recipe (passed in 1990).. which she got from her grandmother.. so yeah, its back when food was real - so to speak. Our family has had this every year that I remember.. raw eggs were never an issue(I think it’s the alcohol in it). If there is a worry- wash the shells gently before you open the egg. BTW - we add cinnamon, and use Amaretto (instead of bourbon or rum). This is a GREAT recipe - make sure to mix well before serving!

Amazingly Good Eggnog
My grandmothers recipe is almost impossible to beat but it is old school and uses raw eggs (which as long as you wash the shell, I’m ok with). I really like this -- only changes I will make is using ground cloves (1 teaspoon) and Amaretto instead of rum.. sweeter, softer, easier flavor to handle with still a nice kick.
