It's easy to make and tastes great. Last night I brought the ingredients over to a holiday party and whipped it up (literally) in the kitchen in less than 20 minutes. Because I didn’t have time to chill it, I placed the eggnog in a bowl nestled on top of ice in a larger bowl. It was an instant hit. Things I did: (1) Added 1 & ½ cups of dark rum (Bacardi Black); (2) Placed the mixing bowl (for whipping the cream) in the freezer for approximately 20 minutes prior to using – it helps the cream thicken faster with the hand-held blender; and (3) Sprinkled cinnamon and nutmeg on top. Will definitely use the recipe again. [2009 Note: I now use a blender (which is better than a hand-held mixer to thoroughly blend the eggs). In a blender add the eggs, sweetened condensed milk, vanilla, and a generous splash of the milk and blend well. Then pour into a large punch bowl and add the rest of the milk (and rum) and mix. Continue with step 2 from there.] Happy holidays…ho, ho, ho.



Delicious! I did make a few changes. I cut out the sweetened condensed milk, and beat in 1 C of powdered sugar instead--our family doesn't like this to be too sweet. I also add in a dash of liquor--either bourbon, rum, or amaretto. We use a bit more nutmeg than what the recipe calls for. Otherwise, this is a fantastic recipe--this is what eggnog should REALLY taste like, not the icky stuff that comes pre-made.



Boy did I make a mistake making this recipe! My family won't leave me alone! "Make more eggnog Mom!" Very good! Make sure it stays mixed well, and it's so nice and thick! For extra fun I put canned whipped cream on top and sprinkle with nutmeg. Now excuse me, I have to go buy more eggs and whipping cream.
