Sanders EggNog

2 (1 qt.) cartons of eggnog, frozen
1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream
7 UP, just enough to mix til desired consistency.

Peel away the cardboard from egg nog and cut up into large chunks (don't use the plastic containers of eggnog - it's a nightmare to try and get the frozen eggnog out!). Put in a large bowl. Add the ice cream and mash together. A potato masher works pretty well. Pour in 7 Up a little at a time and mix until desired consistency.
