Instructions Checklist

  • Combine milk, whipping cream, and nutmeg in a large saucepan. Cook over medium heat until mixture just begins to simmer with 1 to 2 bubbles every 2 to 3 seconds, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat.

  • Add a very small amount of the hot milk mixture into the egg yolk mixture while constantly whisking the eggs. Continue adding small amounts of the milk mixture, whisking until all has been added; transfer eggnog back into the saucepan. Continue to cook over medium heat, whisking constantly, until liquid reaches 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Pour eggnog into a large pitcher, cover, and refrigerate 6 hours to overnight.

  • Blend cooled eggnog with an immersion blender until no lumps remain, about 1 minute. Ladle into 7 cups and top each with a dollop of whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

If you are expecting a replica of store-bought egg nog out of this recipe, look somewhere else. This is a recipe that, while unique, is different from other store-bought egg nog that you will find around Christmastime. I had a craving to make egg nog, found this recipe, and made it. It's honestly a good drink, but if you're on a diet such as Keto or something that prohibits a lot of sugar, look elsewhere, 'cuz this egg nog lets you celebrate the Holiday season any time of the year with authenticity, at least where beverages are concerned. Bit of warning, though. Be sure to actually stir all areas of the pan while it's cooking. My whisk couldn't get everywhere, and the corners of the pan got overcooked. Read More

I LOVE EGGNOG!!! I’ve never made it but I’m glad that I gave it a shot! This recipe is easy to follow and tastes almost exactly like my favorite brand. I tasted it first and then I added a shot and a half of my favorite cream bourbon. Either way you try it, you will be very pleased. Thanks for an awesome recipe! Read More

I liked this recipe a great deal. It is rich, smooth and tasty. I'm drinking it now without any rum and without any whipped cream on top and the taste is top notch. The only thing I wish for is it being a bit thicker. Other than that the recipe is on point as is! Read More
