I love egg nog and I have been wanting to try making it for years and I'm glad I found this recipe to begin with. I did make it a bit differently. As the others suggested, I did use a double boiler and it worked out great. Also, I am not on a diet but I am trying to eat better, so I substituted the milk with some fat free half and half for 2/3 of the milk amount and then fat free condensed milk for 1/3 of the milk amount. It makes the egg nog extremely creamy which is how I like it. I also used the Splenda/sugar blend for the sugar amount listed in the recipe. Even with the changes that I made to this recipe, it truly was the best egg nog I've ever had. Prior to serving the egg nog, however, I give a splash of ameretto and then garnish with just a little bit of nutmeg. I skipped the mixing in of the whipping cream since it was already creamy enough and felt this was a step that was not necessary. I also believe, that without any changes that I made, the recipe will be one of the best egg nogs you've ever tasted.
