How to Make the Best Eggnog

I just looked at the calendar and realized that the time for wintry merrymaking is coming closer. While I'm staunchly against Christmas creeping forward every year (seriously, retailers, can we at least wait until after Halloween before putting up Christmas decorations?), there's one piece of Yuletide cheer that is best started before Thanksgiving: eggnog.

I'm not talking about adding a lot of rum to eggnog from a grocer's dairy case. That stuff is, quite frankly, hideous. In lieu of eggs, dairies add all manner of thickeners and flavorings and try to pass it off as real eggnog. I'll pass, thank you.
