Yes, I have an amazing one. I make it every year. I'm now famous for it. Honestly, I stole it from a friend who was famous for it. That's why I can't give it out. This is a CRAZY high proof recipe, though. I've had eggnog last 10 months without going south, when kept in the fridge. That's right, kids, 10 months without spoiling. Not that I was inclined to drink it at that point, but you put enough fortification in dairy and the hands of time stand still. I would not have believed this if I hadn't done it myself, but it works. Plus my recipe doesn't even start to peak until 3-4 weeks in and is singing at 8 weeks. Strange, but true, very tastey, and very alcoholic.
Probably does not make a difference, but I use all organic dairy and eggs and premiumish spirits. I used to use Weller 107 as one of the key ingredients every year to make it ... those days are gone, however.
