Eggnog

Is it worth the extra trouble to make eggnog from scratch? In a word - YES! Our dedicated taste testing of this recipe conclusively proved that homemade eggnog is a much smoother, richer drink compared to the store-bought carton variety.
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup brandy
  • 1/3 cup dark rum (Captain Morgan for best flavor, but Myers is fine)
  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 2 cups milk
All liquids should be very cold. Refrigerate in advance.

Beat the eggs for 2 or 3 minutes with an electric mixer at medium speed until very frothy. Gradually beat in the sugar, vanilla and nutmeg. Turn the mixer off and stir in the cold brandy, rum, whipping cream and milk Chill before serving. Sprinkle individual servings with more nutmeg.


Makes about 2-1/2 quarts.

Prep time: 30 minutes; Cooking time: none; Total time: 30 minutes
