According to Noelle Cutler, the writer of the article, there are some really interesting tweaks to the different versions of eggnog out there — providing you are willing to make it from scratch.
EGGNOG VARIATIONS: Here are some truly memorable takes on the venerable holiday drink: on the left, rum-coconut in front, citrus-tequila at rear and chestnut honey-Scotch in middle; on right side, clockwise from rear right: brown sugar-rye whiskey butterscotch, amaretto-apricot, nut brittle and gin-maraschino.
However I have a few others that might make it a bit easier for you
Check your local supermarket for Vanilla Spiced premade Eggnog or Pumpkin Spice Eggnog.
Try adding Bacardi Coco-Rum to the Vanilla Spiced Eggnog for a real kick or check out
either Jack Daniels or Makers Mark Whiskey to the Pumpkin one.
Want to take it REALLY decadent with eggnog? Then get a bottle of Hennesy XO Cognac.
