Lemon-lime soda gives this rich beverage a delicate flavor. Even people who don't care for eggnog won't be able to resist a creamy glassful. It's a hit at our Christmas parties. —Lorrie Sexauer, DeSoto, Texas

"I made this for our Women's Quilting group Christmas party and it was a big success. I omitted the marachino cherries. easy to prepare. This time of year, the ingredients are common to have on hand. Thank you."
