    That's what I want to know. I've been waiting since January. I know it's always available before Thanksgiving, but does it hit the dairy shelves before Halloween? I hope so, cuz I'd like a big cup right now.

    And another thing: why is it only available 6 weeks a year? What other dairy products are so limited? None that I know of. Is there some law that restricts eggnog's availability? Or is it no one is thinking outside the box?

    Why don't you make your own? Ain't that complicated.

    Have done so, but mine just isn't as tasty as that coming from the dairy.

    I've tried three so far and it's never as good as what I get in the store. It's also hard to get over the idea of drinking raw eggs, despite how safe I know it is.

    I too love the stuff.

    Last year, my dad brought by a bottle of eggnog pre-mixed with rum. My wife and I polished that off pretty quick. I cannot remember the last time I bought a bottle of liquor, but I may need to go out and look for one of those now that the weather is cooling down again.

    I only usually drink it during the week between Christmas and New Year's. Good stuff.

    Which recipes have you tried? I've received nothing but praise from the Good Eats recipe.

    HMMMMM may have to try this.

    BTW: Count me in as pro-eggnog, particularly with a generous hit of bourbon or rum or cognac or any combination thereof. takes the edge off dealing with the fambly.

    I've found there's a happy median with doubling the amount of bourbon to 6 oz. I've tried a full cup before but it was too strong for most tastes.
