    I've made this quite a few times, aging it different amounts, and I think it was best at a 6 month age, which means that you should whip yours up this weekend too ;) I always sub the cognac ($$)...

    Aged eggnog is like an alcohol-infused liquid custard, and it's amazing. You're not likely to drink it to the point of intoxication, as it's extremely rich; it's more of a dessert cocktail.
