    This is even better than Mom's original recipe! Must have been the 3 liquors. Fantastic!

    This is so yummy, even my vegan friends drank it. Note that you need to keep folding this, as the foam rises after a while sitting out.

    OMG! After making this, I don't think I can ever go back to freaking delicious and well worth the 300 or so calorie splurge per half-cup serving!

    This turned out perfectly! I made it for Thanksgiving for 16 of my friends who are all Swiss (as am I). Most of them were very skeptical of an alcoholic drink containing eggs (Eggnog is not widely popular here...). Every single one asked for seconds!!

    By far, the best eggnong recipe out there. I have to admit that sometimes I do cheat and buy the eggnog, but I still use Martha's liquor ratio. Always a BIG hit at Christmas parties, even for those who think they don't like eggnog.

    Absolutely awesome! It was a hit last year's Christmas gathering and also a party. It will be made again this year! Happy Holidays everyone!

    This is beyond delicious! I've also added a bit of sherry (ran out of cognac) and that works too - makes it a bit sweeter. A huge hit at any party!

    Yes, I think pregnant or anyone whose health is compromised should stay away from this eggnog for the amount of liquor it contains, never mind the raw eggs!! This is intense eggnog. My husband LOVES it. I had half a cup and I was in pain (I have a slight lactose sensitivity that usually doesn't bother me) It is something very special for your holiday guests to enjoy. They've probably never tasted eggnog like this.

    The eggs may not be cooked, BUT, wouldn't the massive amount of alcohol kill anything within a 10 mile radius?!
