I made this with actual rum instead of the rum-flavored extract--it was pretty good. I used 1/2 cup of Captain Morgan's Spiced Rum. With the other ingredients, it tasted a little bland, so I added some extra nutmeg and also about 1/2 tsp. of ground cloves and 1/2 tsp. of vanilla extract. With the extra spices, it tasted more like eggnog, in my opinion. Maybe my problem was not using the extract, but, no matter--with the real rum & extra spices, it was delicious. I put this in an empty milk jug, which worked out well for storing and pouring at a Christmas gathering. Not glamorous, but incredibly functional.
