My kids love eggnog. This makes a utelot!! great for a party. This is a non-alcoholic version I can serve my kids. If you want the alcohol substitute 3/4 - 1 C. brandy or Rum for the extracts and reduce the milk by 2/3 cup. Needs to chill for 2 hours before serving then you need to sit for 15 minutes before assembling in a punch bowl. Prep time includes this 2 hour chill time.
