This recipe is awsome!! And frothy it is. The only thing I did different was substitute the rum extract for the real thing, I put three Tablespoons in, and it was just enough, and it didnt overkill the recipe. Great recipe..thanks!

Made as-written. It's good. Not great, but it's good.

This is a very good eggnog. My kids love it. I used pasturized egg substitute in place of the eggs and used Splenda in place of the sugar, using a 1/2 cup instead of the full amount of sugar. It tastes rich and creamy and we don't have to worry about raw eggs! YUMMY!

Great stuff! I made this for Christmas Eve and we totally enjoyed it. It is so easy to make and tastes so good.

Very Good Eggnog!!!!!!!!!!! Add Whiskey, Brandy, or Rum to it and it will be ~SUPERIOR~ Thanks, Sara M.

This is exceptional eggnog! The only change I made was substituting real rum for the extract and increasing it to 1/4 cup. We started with the tablespoon but felt it could use a little more rum flavor and it was easy to add the extra 1/4 cup after everything was complete, so if you're not sure how strong you want it (1/4 cup isn't very strong) you can always start small and increase later!

I loved this recipe. So much cheaper to make than to purchase pre-made eggnog! I made the recipe as stated, thought it was too thick with the whipped cream. Next time I added the heavy cream at the end but not whipped. Much better.

It was pretty good, but I though it was kind of bland. If I made it again, I would add more sugar.
