Spiked {Easy} "Eggnog"


For some reason the idea of true eggnog seemed intimidating [using an egg in a drink...I just wasn't sure about that.] So I decided to search for easy alternate versions to create the seasonal drink. I discovered a few options that used vanilla ice cream as the base. This drink can be made spiked or not, I really enjoy the addition of dark rum. [It gives it a really rich flavor.] 

You'll need :
[1] Vanilla ice cream
[2] Dark Rum
[3] Ground nutmeg
[4] Whipped cream
[5] Cinnamon sticks 

To Make :
[1] Melt down a bowl of ice cream in the microwave for about 2 minutes
[2] Stir well & place in fridge to cool down
[3] Add a small amount of rum [I didn't add a full shot because the flavor would be overwhelming. I used the bottle cap to measure out a small amount.]
[4] Add a dash of nutmeg and mix all together
[5] Top with a scoop of ice cream and whip cream
[6] Garnish with nutmeg and cinnamon sticks

Enjoy! This mixture is the perfect after dinner treat. Have any of you made actual eggnog? If so, I'd love to hear recipes or how it turned out!
