Oh my goodness. I made this for my family over the holidays and we LOVED it. I did halve the recipe as it was just us, but sooooo good. I can't wait to make it for our big extended family. I kept the alcohol out on the side as there were kids here, but it was good without too. (But better with!!!) This is a keeper!!!!! Thank you for sharing.
I forgot to review this when I made it over the Christmas holidays. This is the best recipe for eggnog I have tasted. You won't be disappointed if you make this!!
Bergy, this was delicious! I made half with alcohol and half without. I liked that it wasn't too thick, and it had a wonderful flavor. I mixed the eggnog the morning of the party and let it chill for about 8 hours. I think it could be mixed up a day in advance if needed. I will definitely make this again.
This got rave reviews from my family, but I thought it was a bit light. I halfed the recipe, and it was the perfect amount for 5, but next time I will do a little less milk. Also, I do wish that there were approximate times on the recipe for beating, as everyones judgement is different on "thicken." I think I overdid my cream just a little, as there were whipped cream floaters on every glass. But I don't think we will ever buy storebought again!
Even my friends that don't normally care for eggnog loved it. Now they request it. Will be making it for the third time this year.
Incredible! I made with alcohol, since I don't trust the eggs without it. Mind over matter really. I made a slight change with that as well, putting 1 Cup of light rum, and 2 cups of Brandy in instead of the whiskey. It only keeps for 4 days, so drink fast! Puts the store bought stuff to shame.
Made exactly as posted minus the alcohol and it tasted awesome!!!! Very easy to make also. Thanks for a great recipe
I just gone done trying to make this and it is absolutely wonderful! I used my handheld mixer with the whipping disc and it took seconds to whip up the eggs. I can't get over how good this stuff is! I did scale the recipe down as I didn't know if I would like it and didn't want to waste all that egg nog if I didn't like it. Next time I'm making the full batch! Thanks so much for the recipe!
