Ive seen some recipes that they want you to age for a couple weeks, is this a mix and serve version?

That's how I've always done it. The stiff peaks in the egg whites start to lose their fluffiness after a day or two, and the drink gets a lot denser more like supermarket eggnog.

Yeah, I heard that also and it is actually safer to do so. Interesting factoid from a show on NPR, there is a lab ran some experiments on eggnog and for one of them they purposely infected the eggnog with salmonella. After aging for a couple of weeks in the refrigerator the salmonella was destroyed and the eggnog was essentially sterile. Here is a link to the transcript.https://www.npr.org/2012/11/30/166248517/perhaps-another-reason-to-spike-that-eggnog

I make that recipe every year around mid-Nov. Eggs from friends chickens, local cream. Serve with fresh grated nutmeg on top. It is killer nog. Killer.
