Amazingly Good Eggnog

Rating: Unrated
It's taken me several years to perfect this homemade eggnog recipe. Now everyone asks, 'When are you making the eggnog?!' This uses cooked eggs for safety, and you can use more or less rum to taste. It's a bit of work to make, but well worth it. You'll never buy store-bought eggnog again! Enjoy!

Peppermint Eggnog Punch

Rating: Unrated
This punch is so delicious, I sometimes make a batch without the rum because the kids enjoy it as much as the adults!

Eggnog from Scratch

Rating: Unrated
It is relatively easy to toss a few quarts of eggnog and a bottle of rum into a punch bowl, but take the time to make some eggnog from scratch and you will be amazed how great real eggnog can be.

Eggnog Latte

Rating: Unrated
It wouldn't be Christmas without one (or several!). If you have a home espresso machine, this is a great holiday coffee treat.

Frothy Eggnog

Rating: Unrated
Good old-fashioned eggnog flavored with vanilla and rum extract. Be sure to make extra! This recipe contains raw eggs. We recommend that pregnant women, young children, the elderly and the infirm do not consume raw eggs.

Eggnog Extreme

An extremely rich eggnog. Not for anyone watching cholesterol!

Luscious Eggnog

Rating: Unrated
When serving, keep the bowl of eggnog resting in a bowl of ice to keep it well chilled!

Eggless Eggnog

Rating: Unrated
This recipe is good for those who are allergic to eggs, and those who would like an eggnog free of worries. French vanilla pudding, with a little rum flavoring, and nutmeg, and they'll never know.

Eggnog I

No Christmas is complete without eggnog!

Early American Eggnog

Rating: Unrated
Supposedly a recipe from George Washington, I have used this recipe for five annual New Year's parties. You MUST make it about 10 days in advance to mellow the flavors. Then it is so smooth one of my guests unknowingly served her 2 year old! Use premium vanilla ice cream to keep it chilled in the punch bowl. I like to shape the ice cream in a star molds, and use them one-at-a-time to chill the eggnog throughout the evening.

Sugar Free Eggnog

Rating: Unrated
This is a sugar-free version of a Christmas favorite. It is best to make it just before serving.

Coquito II

Rating: Unrated
This a traditional Puerto Rican eggnog. I am Crucian-Puerto Rican (from St. Croix, VI) and we enjoy this made with our own Cruzan Rum. So, kick up your feet and enjoy!
