Last year, our former wine and spirits editor Jordan Mackay wrote up a fool-proof eggnog recipe guaranteed to yield a Merry Christmas, if you catch our drift. With three kinds of alcohol in it, there's no way you won't have a good time.

When I was a kid, there was nothing I liked better than that deep yellowish-gold, ultra thick and viscous, unctuously sweet eggnog that you could buy from the store. Well, a couple of years ago I discovered that it is as easy to mix up a batch of that stuff for yourself at home as it is to make a margarita--and it's so much more delicious than store-bought, chemical-laden eggnog that, yes, it's funny.
