Am I the only one who didn't grow up with any sort of booze going into egg nog? No run, bourbon, brandy, etc. And I'm not talking because I was a kid and not allowed, I mean the adults weren't doing it either.
And a large part of my family puts schnapps into hot chocolate, bourbon into heated gingerale (and not any gingerale, but the all powerful Vernors), etc. These are people who'd booze the crap out of eggnog if given a reason. But no, we drank it straight.
I mean, it's awesome when boozed up, but def. not a tradition for me.
