The Classic Eggnog recipe is outstanding. I made this recipe for family and friends and it was definitely something that will become a tradition in our household. Everything was just right--right down to the consistency which is often an issue for my husband. This recipe made a great, creamy eggnog that had tons of flavor but was not too sweet.

This is better than most recipes that call for an entire pound of sugar. Not too sweet but thick and rich. Love the light egg nog version too! But nothing beats the "fully leaded" classic!
