Eggnog (Spiked with Rum)

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"I was really never a fan of eggnog... until a friend gave me this proven recipe. It's simply the best! It's rich and creamy, just like melted vanilla ice cream. This makes almost a gallon and packs a punch... so drink responsibly."

  1. Mix egg yolks, 2 cups sugar, rum, and nutmeg together in a large bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 8 hours to overnight to "cure."
  2. Beat egg whites and remaining 1 cup sugar in a bowl using an electric mixer until firm peaks form. Fold in heavy cream. Fold in the egg yolk mixture. Beat in half-and-half until well combined. Pour into lidded jars or containers, refrigerate, and shake before serving.

Made this eggnog for a party and it was a HUGE hit! My guests loved it and said it was the best eggnog they had ever had.

I don't care for Captain Morgan but it is my husbands drink of choice so I made this for him. He gave it 2 thumbs up and asked me to make it again so I'm going with a 5 star rating.
