    That's the one that's in our fridge. I didn't see a cheaper one. And there's no deposit on the glass one either...

Obviously Frankfort Distillers needed to move some whiskey, and FR came in pint bottles.

    Looking at the recipe on the FR site, it seems that the alcohol is within reason. The recipe makes 5 pints which is 10 8oz servings with a 16 oz pint of whiskey and 1oz of rum...so 1.7 oz of liquor per serving.

    Re: Eggnog

    It does my heart good to see this thread renewed.

    Well, actually, it probably doesn't do my heart any good, at least the coronary arteries, to drink egg nog. But I thank you all in memory of my father, whose recipe, a descendant of the original Four Roses one, started this thread.

    Cheers to all for the holidays!

    The NPR show Science Friday has a video on the safety of using raw eggs in spiked eggnog. Fun video, although the results were inconclusive.

    Re: Eggnog

    Ah... Eggnog. I have tried numerous recipes, the best of which are all pretty similiar..... eggs , sugar, cream, booze. The major variant seems to be the % of booze which runs from 10% to as high as 55% in some recipes I have tried.

    IMO what makes a major difference in flavor is aging. I typically age mine for 6 - 8 weeks.... drinking it through the holiday season from Thanksgiving through New Years. When first made the flavors are easy to identify... eggs, cream, sugar, booze. As the brew ages the flavors meld, the consistency thickens and the mouth feel becomes very silky.

    I use at least 20-25% alcohol and store the eggnog in the fridge below 40F. I would not recommend aging an alcohol free eggnog.

    Re: Eggnog

    I was tempted to pick up some eggnog today, but I passed. I am craving it, so I will probably get some very soon. I'll most likely go for the non-alcoholic vesion and add some liquor (bourbon, of course) to make it my own.

    I am in heaven! Just cracked open the Evan Williams eggnog. It beats the pants off the Pennsylvania Dutch eggnog.

    Thank you, Bettye Jo and friends!
