I switched to Coquito. Tastes twice as good and doesn't have that "sloppy weekend at the bathhouse" throat feel.

Thank you, Puerto Rico, you are doing God's work.

Eggnog from the store is overwhelmingly sweet and thick, plus the flavoring is noticably artificial. Even when I cut it down with milk, there's still something off about it.

...and this, too.  I guess it helps to read the thread at least :)

Eggnog always reminds me of my Dad, one of his few indulgences.

Trader Joe's brandy and rum eggnog isn't too bad. I had some for Thanksgiving. Not too thick and a nice amount of spiciness from the brandy.

What we call eggnog is a horrible conglomeration of semi-coagulated eggs and dairy swimming in heavy syrup and carrageenan. There are dozens of excellent drinks in that family from the original butter beer to Susie Bright's Eggnog to Die For which are balanced and don't have the mouth feel of Paula Deen's intimate secretions

Been on a diet lately but I have two things to break it for.

This just once:

And a box of Fruit Brute that I'm saving for once I'm down 30 pounds.

Hmm, I have coconut milk and lactose free sweetened condensed milk, that might be my nightcap.

The best eggnog is the one you find the tastiest. That's just objective fact.

One year I made Alton Brown's egg nog. It was actually pretty good. Maybe it was the bourbon.

Akuinnen: One year I made Alton Brown's egg nog. It was actually pretty good. Maybe it was the bourbon.


For several years now I've mixed up a double or triple batch of that in the fall and handed it out (in last year's wine advent calendar bottles, they're the perfect size) to friends and family at Christmastime. This year has been insanely busy and expensive, so I just made the limited run 2022 half-batch tonight and will serve a much lighter, more traditional rum punch or something at my Christmas party.

The store-bought stuff is fine if you cut it with milk, or use it as coffee creamer, but I've never been able to drink more than a few sips straight. Tip: don't try to use real homemade eggnog as creamer in hot coffee unless you like drinking scrambled eggs.
