    You are right, PetiteMiam. We've corrected that step in the directions, thanks!  -  28 Dec 2011


    The ingredients say 1.5 cups of sugar in total - but th instructions refer to 2 cups (unless I've already had too much rum!!)  -  24 Dec 2011


    Forget the rest...this IS the best. If you buy that yellow sludge from the grocery store labeled "Eggnog", you should be ashamed!!! This eggnog is truly a cut above them all, it is thick, rich, creamy and absolutely luscious. I served this to my guests last Christmas and everyone BEGGED for more. I had to come back this year to find the recipe again. Not necessarily the easiest to make, but WELL worth every effort. A new tradition has been added to my household. Thank you, Henry VG...who EVER you are!!!  -  26 Nov 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
