For Kayley,
I think as long as your bowl has a tight fitting lid you might be ok.
I would worry a bit about gas build up and your bowl "flipping" the lid
Just keep a good eye on it and check often but you should be fine. I do only glass
because I don't like the taste of anything fermenting in plastic, hopefully the bowl you are
using is glass. That's just me.
Good luck to you on your batch!

Just got out the last 2 bottles I made 2 years ago to celebrate the 4th of July. I have been making this recipe for over 4 years now. Get rave reviews from all who have some. This batch is mellowed so perfect it taste so smooth and rich - can't tell there is alcohol in it. Make it, bottle it, let it sit (find room in the fridge) and forget about it---the longer the better and when you finally drink some you will think you've died and gone to Heaven! :D

Wonderful recipe! I made this last year at this same time. This is a keeper recipe. I am making a double batch today, while drinking a glass of last years batch!:)
I never tried the egg white mixture and might do that this year. You'll see about 50-50 on reactions to the drink. I have friends who love it and ask for it whenever they visit and then there's folks like my hubby who don't want any because of the strong booze factor.
I would like to accomodate the latter 50 by cutting the booze down a bit (perhaps only cut half of the alcohol) but I am not so sure that that might not invite some kind of illness? Does anyone know the answer to that?
Also I wonder if I do add the eggwhite mixture before serving if that mellows the drink to the point where more folks would like it better.
My final say is I LIKE IT....served over ice and sprinkled with nutmeg! Yummy Yummy Yummy!
