During my family's annual cookie exchange, we ran out of our beloved eggnog...much to everyone's horror! So into the kitchen I went to create this cool, creamy concoction—it was a hit!—Jennae LeFebvre, Aurora, Illinois

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 28, 2013

I made this yesterday and it is to die for!!!!! I will certainly add it to my recipe collection. I don't like a strong rum flavor so I only added half of what was called for in the recipe, but ended up adding the full amount of rum and the rum taste was not overpowering. Think I will have to buy more half and half just to make it again.

I got this recipe out of your magazine last year and made it for Thanksgiving. It was a sensation! This is now a tradition I've added to my holidays thanks to you, Taste of Home!
