I'll make some eggnog using some Makers Mark Bourbon . . . I tried making it with Jim Beam or Jack Daniels but I wasn't getting the flavor Dad wanted and had to keep putting more in and it still didn't taste right - I used the Makers Mark and it had just the right *oomph* . . . it had a smokey flavor and you could taste it in the whole of the mouth where the others were just the back of the tongue . . . now you'd just get sick from drinking too much rather than drunk . . .
Dad had signed up to be one of Makers Mark 'Ambassadors' and they put his name (along with several others) on a cask that they will tap next month - the catch is I would have to go there to get a couple of bottles from that cask . . . they would last quite a while . . . I didn't even make eggnog last year

I have an amazing eggnog recipe, from the Williams family of Williamsburg VA. (came to my family through marriage). It's the real 18th century thing - you can tell from the vast amounts of spirits, cream, eggs, etc. The recipe makes enough for 50 !! I used to make it in college, when we all had hobnailed livers. Anymore, my gang is too old to enjoy more than a very little of it! That said, there's so much protein in it, you don't exactly get a hangover... we called it the Velvet Hammer... Ah, my misspent youth!

Lord!!! Maw, I never drink poison.........

I do occasionally have a mixed drink known as a *Bloody Mary*, on
rarer occasions a lovely glass of Peach Schnaps....or a decent beer.
But never whiskey. Well come to think on it, maybe
if it's the *Bailey's Irish Creme* varity...in my after dinner coffee...

Well, if you need to measure more than a foot, just put the good one down and then hop for the next. I mean really, Hans.

Well after everyone gets finished with the 70 year old brandy being passed around generously, the MoM headquarters is certainly going to listing to one side, at a pretty good slant.

Hows the foot Hans...have another glass of brandy...pretty soon your won't even notice the pain...or that you even have feet....

If Hans drinks any more he won't just be footless: he'll be LEGLESS!



* 'Inch comes from the Old English 'ynce'; which, in turn, comes from the Latin 'uncia' meaning a twelth-part.

'Ounce' comes from the same derivation as, at one time, there were 12 ounces to the pound. *

My recipe is real simple: bourbon (or if you want, rum but bourbon is good !), sugar, heavy cream, milk, and egg yolks (the whites don't get 'cooked' like the yolks do and tastes blech ! - save the whites to make twice cooked divinity).

I'll take orange juice and Diet 7up please - very little or no vodka please.
~Or~
I'll take a lime margarita, frozen.
