Don's Friend Tonja's Cousin Toni's Boyfriend's Grandmother's Eggnog Recipe - Tonja was born in the 1940's and this is her cousin Toni's boyfriend's grandmother's eggnog, so I'm guessing this is from  the mid-1800's and probably dates much earlier. The original recipe called for half milk and half cream, but I use half and half.  Delicious and simple, but be warned, Granny apparently liked a kick!  I've made it from scratch and with the modern equivalents and it's fantastic either way.  Do yourself a favor and use a mixer for everything.  Those who like eggnog LOVE this recipe.  I never leave a party with leftovers.
