The Best ( Alcoholic ) Eggnog

Alcoholic Eggnog, with a kick!  Auki's favourite kind.
The festive season is quickly approaching again, it seems to come faster every year so I have posted up my recipe for all to share.

I have received so many requests to use this recipe in writeups around the place that I am just going to write a standard disclaimer that anyone is free to publish this in any medium if they just link back to

Ultimate Alcoholic Eggnog Recipe
This recipe has been an annual thing for me for over a decade now.  It is the product of a few experimentation sessions and a love for all things festive.  It packs a wicked punch and tastes creamy and indulgent.  Ideal to get in to the holiday spirit (pun fully intended).

Beware - this eggnog is a very potent alcoholic cocktail. Please be mindful and drink responsibly, it goes down very easily.
