The annual eggnog recipe

For anyone new to the blog, I do have my traditions and eggnog is a big one.

Each year I share this recipe for Bert’s Eggnog with readers. This stuff is the nectar of the gods. You need to prepare it the night before in order to let the flavors come together.

Those who were raised on eggnog from a carton won’t like it. Those who despise eggnog because they think real eggnog tastes like that from a carton will be shocked–in a good way. I’ve made many an eggnog convert with this amazing recipe. The story of how it came to be part of our holiday tradition is on the document.

Also, I’m throwing in my favorite gingersnap recipe. I no longer eat wheat flour, but this was a staple for years. Enjoy these recipes and get your eggnog ready!

5 Things You Don’t Know About Me

1. I worked in the U.S. Senate from 1986 to 1988. Okay, you may know that, but you probably didn’t know that I shook the hands of these people: Lesley Stahl, Bob Woodward, William H. Webster (CIA director), Elizabeth Dole (then Secretary of Transportation) and too many others to mention. George Tenet (recently “retired” CIA director) was then my boss’s point-man on the Senate Intelligence Committee and was in my office all of the time (along with all of the other Intelligence whisperers). One year, my boss gave me his one ticket to the State of the Union address and I sat two rows behind Nancy Reagan.

Christmas Eggnog: Not for the faint of heart

A holiday gift for you to prepare in advance. Make sure you let the flavors come together at least overnight.

A couple of years ago I shared this eggnog recipe with readers. This stuff is the nectar of the gods.
