I haven't tried this recipe either, but I didn't think it was fair for someone to leave a 1 star review when they didn't try it, just because the recipe calls for raw eggs. The fact is, the chance of getting salmonella from eating raw eggs is 1 in 30,000. And actually, in a healthy human body, salmonella can't do any harm. Most of us have some small amount of salmonella introduced into our systems all the time. In a healthy body the salmonella is controlled and killed by healthy intestinal flora in the gut. It's a shame people don't get their facts straight before posting a review of an untried recipe, leaving 1 star and ruining the overall rating. Happy Holidays (and try not to drink 30,000 eggs-worth of eggnog)!! :o)
This is the best eggnog I have ever tasted. It really does need to age the full 10 days. I had made some and sent some with my husband to his New Years Eve party for work the eggnog was at 7 days, it was good but at 10 days it was great!!! I already have set the date to make it next year for both Christmas and New Years.
Save yourself some time and just make a double batch to begin with. Put 1/2 out for guests; hide the other 1/2 for yourself. When I offered this to my guests on Christmas Eve, the whole batch disappeared before I even had dinner on the table. It's fabulous!
