This eggnog uses cooked eggs so no worries. I have never made eggnog but want to try it. This one sounded delish and got 5 star ratings from 370 people. That's pr-etty good! It was submitted to a Safeway food store recipe site. Thought, the season is right, lets share it! Cheers!
As always, please drink responsibly.

Combine milk, cloves, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, and cinnamon in a saucepan, and heat over lowest setting for 5 minutes. Slowly bring milk mixture to a boil.
In a large bowl, combine egg yolks and sugar. Whisk together until fluffy. Whisk hot milk mixture slowly into the eggs. Pour mixture into saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly for 3 minutes, or until thick. Do not allow mixture to boil. Strain to remove cloves, and let cool for about an hour.
Stir in rum, cream, 2 teaspoon vanilla, and nutmeg. Refrigerate overnight before serving.
