My husband uses egg beaters or some such rather than whole eggs, and it is always a hit (of course, copious amounts of dark rum are involved). The recipe sounds similar.
Eggnog humor story? One year, when hubby was just starting to make eggnog, he used whole eggs, and had the mixture all made. He'd decided if regular rum was good, then Barcadi 151 would be better. He poured in the rum then yelled at me. I ran to the kitchen. I just started laughing. He kept saying the half-and-half must not have been fresh and was curdling. I laughed harder. When I caught my breath I told him ... the rum had literally cooked the eggs. Look, Hun, you can actually see yolks and whites in there (picture egg drop soup). He was in a panic, but I'm my mother's daughter, pulled out a sieve, and great fun was had by all with no one the wiser except a select few guests who we have regaled with the story for decades!
