The following recipe is the ONLY eggnog I drink.  Once you taste a sample of this batch you'll understand why.


1 quart half 'n half

1 quart heavy whipping cream

8 eggs, separated into two bowls

1/2 cup sugar

1 cup rum (preferably golden)

1 cup brandy or apple jack

nutmeg, freshly ground or store bought

  • In medium bowl, whip the egg whites until the whites are shiny. set aside.

In large bowl (I mean Texas-sized Large bowl) add the sugar to the egg yolks. Mix on medium speed until sugar is incorporated.

With mixer on low speed...S-L-O-W-L-Y add the liquor in a thin stream. (If you don't add it slowly you will COOK the eggs!)

Once all liquor is incorporated add whipping cream.  Add the half-n-half.  Once they are mixed gently fold the egg whites into the nog on low speed.  Sprinkle with nutmeg.

Keep cold.  If you still have some leftover the next day you need to practice for next year!  This will put a hitch in yer giddy up!

enjoy....xoxo lulu

I definitely need a hitch in my giddy up! I am not a fan of egg nog, but I must admit that this recipe sounds pretty dang good. I think it would be better if you eliminated the eggs and all that spice stuff...basically, keep the cream (when you see me, you will understand that I love butter and cream!)and rum and brandy. Hell, throw out the cream too. Rum and brandy. Happy Yew Near!

This sounds tasty. But, I'll say it again...if you want a ready made egg nog...hit your local liquor store and git yerself some Pennsylvania Dutch Egg Nog. The northerners have it "down" when it comes to this stuff! YUM! ~Mindy
