Basic Cooked Eggnog

Basic Cooked Eggnog is a very traditional Christmas drink, so lets deck the halls with boughs of holly, and bottoms up to the end of another year. You can buy the ready made in the supermarkets, although it is nice to have the homemade stuff because you can add your little tipple of something special.
