    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    You will never purchase the store-bought again after having this, this is also wonderful without the rum, but better if added, and for a mild rum flavor use only 1 cup you may increase to up to 2 cups --- plan ahead this needs a chilling time of 24 hours before serving --- *note* this is made using *cooked* eggs

      Me and Eggnog got back together bc of this recipe! I will add that Dereck added another cup of rum and we still couldn't taste the alcohol! Eggnog hides alcohol flavor very well. Yummy!

      Doesn't get any better than this! 2 cups of rum is way to go, not strong at all.
