Information

Okay, there are millions of egg nog recipes out there, of various style and repute. Our favorite is this one from Jeffrey Morganthaler, who eschews the store-brand egg nog for a homemade kind.

He extols the recipe's fortunes thusly:

It can be made in just about any home or bar, since the ingredients are fairly simple. It can be done entirely in a blender, so there are no whisks or beaters or rubber spatulas or stovetops needed. It yields two healthy servings, so you can easily multiply it to serve more. It doesn’t use a ton of heavy cream, so it’s fairly light. In other words, it’s practically perfect.
