Man all I wanted to do was try eggnog. I really hope this is a bad example of the recipe because i'm certain no self respecting american would even think of drinking this! Sorry, just not nice at all. Hopefully I'll find a better recipe somewhere else.

this tasted good, but not very "eggy", it tasted like sweetend milk with whipped cream and rum. next time i might try adding more eggs.

Followed another reviewer's advice and doubled the egg yolks, and added vanilla. We never put Rum in our eggnog and think it's delicious that way. One thing the recipe doesn't mention is that to form stiff peaks in the whipping cream you need to also add sugar to that (about 2 Tblsp). This also makes the recipe sweeter - We serve the whipping cream on the side so each person can make it as sweet as they like.
