I've researched many recipes for Eggnog and the following is the easiest and one of my favorites. I've made the most complicated recipes involving eggs that have to be beaten, egg whites that have to be folded into the mixture, recipes that include a French Vanilla Pudding mix, sweetened condensed milk etc.
I'm not opposed to tackling difficult or complicated recipes that are time consuming. I find some of them a challenge and I have created some original recipes that I don't expect others to make, however, I also appreciate some of the most simple, tried and true recipes, and this one is one of those! I've posted my favorite homemade recipe on the Blog too that's more traditional.
I'm not sure why I called it "Texas" Eggnog, maybe it's the addition of whiskey!
But it's dang good!
Texas Holiday Eggnog:
1/2 gallon of the best darn good Eggnog Ice Cream money can buy.
1 quart of whole milk
1 quart of the best darn good Eggnog money can buy.

1/2 pint Blended Whiskey, what ever you can find!
Freshly ground nutmeg for a garnish.
Soften the ice cream
Mix all of the ingredients by hand, in a large bowl.

Just before serving, sprinkle the top of the Eggnog with a good amount of nutmeg.
