But really, there's no need to go into post-nog-depression, there is hope! Even if Wal-mart refuses to give us the nectar of life year-round, we can fend for ourselves creating something truly spectacular--homemade eggnog. Yes, don't freak out, it can be done. I've found a highly rated recipe on Recipezaar.com, and am posting it here. Hopefully it will bring a little "spice" into your otherwise dull, colorless, eggnog-free January.
(By the way, the recipe's author says that it's great without the alcohol, a good thing for teetotalers like me!)
20 Cups (change servings and units)
