Gather all of your closest friends, and raise a toast! It wouldn't be the holidays without a little spiked eggnog in your holiday glass. This recipe from country musician Alan Jackson is an oh-so-creamy, rich eggnog made with whipped cream and whipped egg whites. A hearty helping of bourbon and a splash of light rum add a little kick. Although it tastes restaurant-worthy, this recipe is easy to replicate at home for thirsty party guests. As the mixture is chilling, pop a few glasses in the freezer to get them nice and frosty before serving. Once you pour the eggnog, grate a little fresh nutmeg over the cocktails to finish them off. For more of Alan's favorite drinks, check out AJ's Good Time Bar in downtown Nashville (which has no cover for NYE!). Cheers!
