Add: to above mix
1 pint 100 proof Burbon 1 pint very good Rum (dark) 1 pint Brandy Enough half and half to fill gallon container.
To age, turn end to end a few times (2) each day for aprox a month.

Do you know how to make moonshine too? icon_lol.gif Seriously though, this sounds really good. My family is Catholic so we love to drink!

LOL.....we "discovered" boxed wine last year. I host my entire family (48 of us) every Christmas Eve. As the family grew larger I noticed I was spending more at the liquor store than on food. Last Christmas we decided to buy the boxed wine since it's so inexpensive. It was great, none of them noticed the difference and for some reason they got "feeling good" a lot quicker than usual and it made for a very festive Christmas eve. We intend to make the same purchase this year!

Mike your eggnog recipe sounds fantastic.....I think I'll try it without the eggs icon_razz.gificon_razz.gif That should get my sisters dancing on the kitchen island in record time! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

Boxed wine is classy! It ain't a party at my house without the Franzia! And now we can add Mike's bathtub Eggnog to the list!

I wish we drank at my husband's family gatherings, they'd be SO much more bearable. icon_lol.gif

Alcohol is a must at my dh's family gatherings. When I was pregnant, it was unbearable!

All that half and half.... yummy but a gazillion calories. You'll have the Jenny Craig police after you.

Just remember not to taste too much, too often. You want to leave some for the actual holiday meal!
