INGREDIENTS
Gather all your ingredients, plus an egg yolk separator, a large bowl, and a container to store the eggnog in. Don't skimp on the alcohol! It keeps the eggs in the drink from going bad.

Now add in everything else: the booze, the milk and cream, and the salt. Stir everything up.

Finally the hard part: you have to store your mix in the fridge and let it age for at least a week, preferably 3-4 weeks. It's tough to wait, but it'll be worth it!
