Sorry, my family didn't like this recipe very much. We were expecting it to taste a lot like the stuff you buy at the store and it just seemed to be missing something.

hmm i did not like the taste of this eggnog for drinking, but it worked fine for my eggnog spice cake luckily. it tasted like milk that had been sitting out too long and i could also taste the flour in it.

I thought this was a great recipie. I made it for a holiday, bring something to lunch, we had at work. It was well liked by all. Too bad I wasn't allowed to add rum. But it was still a success.
