Homemade Old Fashioned Eggnog

My recipe for old fashioned homemade eggnog
Does anything say winter is here and Christmas is one the way like a creamy glass of eggnog? It's one of those decadent libations that only seems fitting during chilly festive nights and once you go homemade it's hard to go back to store bought. Keep reading for how to whip up your own (don't worry no raw eggs here) and spike and spice it just right:

One things I've been infinitely thankful for is growing up in the Mid-Atlantic and New England where there are so many delicious, tried and true traditional recipes. One of the most decadent is creamy eggnog around a cracking fire on a snowy night. Anyone looking for a skinny version will sadly have to go elsewhere as this is the old fashioned recipe in all its glory. Except the eggs here are pasteurized and I've slipped something else into the mix. Licor 43, a warm, deliciously sweet, vanillic liquor that actually originates to the time of Jesus. It seemed rather apropos.  Alright, on with the nogging:
When you're eggs coat the back of the spoon you know its done cooking.
