Brandy Egg Nog Recipe

The following eggnog recipe will teach you how to make it the traditional Christmas Egg Nog way - the way my mom made hers - with a bit of alcohol.   This specific alcoholic version specifically uses brandy, which is the way I am used to it.
When making eggnog with this recipe, it is most important that you brew with love.  I'm sure that was what made it taste so good.
