In your egg nog can you substatute something else for the burbon. I don't drink so I would need to use something else. Can you suggest something?

I wished for ur recipe for egg nog cookies. I can't find my moms. I can't drink it, because I'm allergic to dairy.

I've been making this same recipe for more than 40 years, except I use Rum instead of Bourbon. Always rave reviews from guests!
