Spiked Eggnog

Rich, creamy eggnog is a favorite holiday indulgence and adding some booze turns it into a truly decadent, grown-up treat.

This formula for spiked eggnog (we hesitate to call it a recipe) includes both dark rum (or bourbon) and cognac. The combination cuts the richness of the eggnog without adding an overwhelming alcohol flavor.
