That recipe reads much like jazz sounds.

Yeah, that's pretty much the recipe my family has used for decades, though MAYBE not with as much booze.

Alcohol in eggnog is like the porkchop subby's mom used to tie around his neck to get the dog to play with him.

151 Proof?

I remember a beer that was around 15% alcohol. Intellectually you knew to drink it like wine, but habit won.  I can't imagine what a sneaky 151 proof drink would do.

On The IT Crowd, Roy said, "You English drink like you don't want to live." That's 151 proof.

My mother made a drink -- off the top of her head -- one Christmas when I was tiny and asked for egg nog. I think the drink was made with foamed egg white, chocolate syrup, soda water, and milk. It was fantastic. The next year she put me off and I never got the drink again. When I was an adult I asked her what she had done and she didn't even remember making it. Obviously what I got was gibberish, but it was good.

To each their own, but hard disagree on that one.

I made a batch of this last night.  Leftovers were consumed this morning.

The key here is to add a small scoop of the ice cream into each individual serving in lieu of ice.  This nog doesn't go down so easily without ice cream, and nobody likes lukewarm egg/milk.

Also, I'm not convinced that whipping the cream separately adds anything to the finished product.  While the whipped egg whites do introduce a bit of airy lightness, which dispells into the liquid ingredients while maintaining some air bubbles, the cream (being more or less a solid) pretty much floats on top in clumps before dissolving and releasing its bubbles in the process.

Ha once brewed a 50 proof IPA.

CSB: That was a mistake. It tasted like garbage and I kegged it.

That was a bigger mistake. Just pull the tap and 50 proof beer.

Then I farked up by turning 25 when I kegged it and my housemate at the time made a loaded pot butter sheet cookie cake.

Then I farked up by seriously not remembering the following week with my housemate as we would both randomly wake up, ear the pot ladden cookie and pour the 50 proof beer go back to the couch and pass out.

I think the moral of the story is "just cause you can do it, doesn't mean you should do it"

I'm fairly sure what you got was a variation on an egg cream (the foamed egg white is usually optional).

Wife trying eggnog for the first time: This would be good over ice cream
Me: This is pretty much ice cream base with booze in it
