We had a full moon tonight. I spent the day paying visits and greeting visitors. I tried to light luminaries under this beautiful moon but failed. Earlier today, my friend Heidi dropped by with her homemade eggnog. It was her second batch. I asked for the recipe but she said it's tricky and instead just brought me some more. I felt so greedy. It's the most delightful eggnog I have ever had in my life. It's delicious and so balanced. I taste everything equally, nothing stands out, such a creamy blend. It's 190 proof, contains Everclear and is to be sipped in tiny, liqueur glass amounts. It's so well balanced though. I wouldn't say it is for everyone. Claude had a sip and got an instant pain between her eyes. I'm a lightweight and not a big drinker but all I get is the cozies after I drink this wonderful Christmas elixir. Heidi says this is how she was taught to make it. Her grandmother used grain alcohol. I am under the impression now that this is how Germans make eggnog.
