This recipe calls for you to whip up some cream and fold it into store-bought eggnog. That makes the result homemade, as far as I'm concerned.
Recipe from 1955 Bacardi advertising
1. Pour 2 quarts of non-alcoholic eggnog into a punch bowl.
2. Stir in a fifth of Bacardi rum, light or dark.
3. Fold in a pint of stiffly whipped cream, then chill for at least 3 hours in the refrigerator.
4. Top individual servings with a light sprinkling of ground nutmeg.

Mom didn't think that was funny but it cracked up Bobby Joe.
