This is the best eggnog recipe of all time. I leave out the rum because I make it as a dessert. Many of the negative reviews are referencing the rum. I think the ratio is wrong in the recipe for that ingredient, so definitely scale back some if you don't want it to knock out your party lol I also cut back on the sugar (by about 1/4 cup). Store bought eggnog is really sweet. I like sweet, but not sicky sweet. I don't use the double boiler method because it doesn't really prevent the problems that people have. So basically that's it, don't use too much sugar or rum. If you don't have light cream, sub half heavy whipping cream with half whole milk (tastes the same). Need small saucepan, strainer (for cloves), whisk, and mixing bowl to make this recipe. Hope that helps.
