Ludy's Kitchen Cooking Tip:
If you're having adult guests for a Holiday party, you can easily spike no-alcohol eggnog cups with a tablespoon or two of bourbon, rum, cognac or brandy. You might want to add liquor to individual cups instead of adding it to a batch, to be sure that kids don't consume alcohol by mistake.
