“Mom only makes this for two reasons: Christmas or by my special request when I'm having a bad run of it. It is delish and even has a special treat - a "smidgin" of whiskey. This is thick and I'm sure that if you're not used to this kind of a drink that you might not like it the first time you try it. It's not eggnog, nor anything like it.”
