Frosty Eggnog Punch

Made with thick, rich Hildebrand Farms Dairy eggnog, this holiday punch makes gatherings even more festive and fun.  The adults in the group may appreciate the addition of a little brandy or bourbon! 

3 - 4 quarts Hildebrand Farms Dairy eggnog, chilled very well
1 gal premium vanilla ice cream, slightly softened
1 quart half and half
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract or substitute your favorite brandy or bourbon
1 tsp. nutmeg (freshly grated is best)
cinnamon for garnish
2 cups whipped cream

Pour eggnog into punch bowl; the amount needed will vary on the size of the punch bowl.  Pour in half and half, a small amount at a time, taking care not to add too much, making eggnog too thin in consistency.  Using a small ice cream scoop or cookie dough scoop, scoop out balls of ice cream and place into eggnog mixture.  Add vanilla, brandy or bourbon, to taste. To finish, add dollops of whipped cream on top, then sprinkle with nutmeg and cinnamon. Serve at once!
