    I had to make eggnog once I'm all set never need to do again. Just buy some and add booze. Not hood try and find a small label brand or a place that makes their own.

    Hey Babish - awesome video! I made this 3 times over the holidays and my friends/family could not get enough. QQ - could you sous vide the eggs prior in order to not deal with heating to 160 degrees? I cooked the egg yolks accidentally a few times, so wondering if that would work instead.

    Thanks again! Keep it up - love all your stuff.

    Lol how to drink. You drink copious amounts of alcohol with friends and family. finishing this off with a prairie oyster at about 11am, with a wash of baking soda and water at about 3am if you have heartburn.

    Just thought you would like to know that the family was expecting great eggnog and they now think I'm an alcoholic. Your recipe is not for casual drinkers! Plus it's literally impossible to make a non alcoholic version. I'm going to be sticking to Babish and staying away from "How to Drink"!

    Just saying you shouldn't put your chopsticks in the food and letting it stick up like that when you aren't eating. It's a sign of bad luck as that's what people normally do when they are using the food as an offering to the dead.
