Personal Notes:
This is from Shirley Moroney, she is the grandmother of my kids Sally, Shauna and Nathan and was my mother-in-law; she taught me a lot about cooking and entertaining. She was a young military wife of Bill in the 1950's; they had to hobnob with senior Army officers and their wives occasionally. A particularly SNOBBY wife of an officer when asked for a recipe at her cocktail party would reply, "Oh no, this is an old family recipe that I can't share". When Shirley hosted a cocktail party during the holidays she made this Eggnog Recipe that she found on the back of the Bourbon bottle. When the "Snobby" wife said she must have the recipe, Shirley turned to her and said, "Oh no, this is an old family recipe that I can't share!" The recipe and the story has remained in the family for over 50 years.
