New Orleans Creole Eggnog

Rated as 4 out of 5 Stars

"This eggnog is great for a crowd during the holiday season. It's very rich so a little goes a long way. Usually, 4 to 6 ounces per person is enough for a serving. The best part is that you can alter the liquors you like or make it without any liquor, too. Use brandy, or substitute Calvados, Cognac, Frangelico, Godiva, or Praline. Have a 4 gallon bowl or container handy to mix the eggnog, and plan to make this 30 days before your party so it seasons well."

  1. Beat the eggs with the white sugar, and light and dark brown sugars in a stand mixer until completely blended. Strain the mixture through a fine mesh sieve into a bowl. Stir in the allspice, mace, ginger, cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, and vanilla.
  2. Pour the bitters, bourbon, rum, almond-flavored liqueur, and brandy into a large, 4 gallon bowl or food safe bucket. Stir in the egg mixture until thoroughly blended. Pour in the heavy cream and continue stirring. Divide into smaller containers and refrigerate. Shake or stir the containers 2 to 4 times each day for 30 days.

very working but its really good

People who claim this eggnog has too much alcohol need to understand that this is the New Orleans version. This is the only eggnog I like. I'm thinking about eliminating the amaretto and reducin...

This is AMAZING eggnog! The best! There is a real chemistry as to why it takes 30 days to mellow. Enjoy!

This much alcohol=hangover! Omitting alcohol; this is for sure!
