Very easy to make and everyone said it was a great blend of seasoning. I added spiced rum instead of plain!

I just made this today for myself and it is very good. The only thing is I didn't get it smooth enough. I will make it again until I perfect it. This recipe is as good, if not better, than the store brands; it was very quick and easy to make as well.

I chilled the nog before adding rum because alcohol starts to evaporate at 80 degrees. ;-)

Maybe I overcooked it. Followed the recipe. Not eggnog.
