Frosty's last stand (Query: too much eggnog?)
An advantage of this recipe for Hot, Spiked Eggnog is that you can make the base in advance, then, when entertaining, serve just one cupful at a time. My personal favorite is still the family recipe from the Pirkeys, but this certainly has an advantage especially if you have a small apartment, small refrigerator or only a few eggnog fans in your group.)
