Early American Eggnog
April 18, 2011

Oh, this is one great recipe!! I totally agree with another reviewer: Use spiced rum!!! It makes such a difference! I'm an egg nog junkie. I make this all year round. And thicker IS better. This is extremely refreshing when it's hot -- and do not be misery about the ice cream. The richer, the better. Also, I have a gelato machine -- and this egg nog is heavenly when it's frozen!! I urge any egg nog lover not to reserve this recipe just for Yule. Make it year-round, and no one will criticize you. (I served this during a great Fourth of July BBQ party, and this was the first beverage that disappeared. I was ordered that next year, I'd better make a triple batch or else!)
