Eggnog: Like or Dislike?

Kim Conte

egg nogNot to be a Scrooge here, but I gotta admit that I've never really acquired a taste for eggnog. There's just something about drinking eggs that makes me shudder no matter how much alcohol is involved. For those who respectfully disagree, I've included two eggnog recipes here (virgin and adult). And for those who prefer eggless holiday drinks, stayed tuned tomorrow for my recipe for mulled wine...
