"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." — MGM Grand

heavy cream, lightly whipped
This was fantastic eggnog. As a safety precaution, we tempered the eggs by first heating 1/2 of the milk and slowly pouring it into the egg and sugar mixture while whisking the eggs constantly. Then proceed with the cold ingredients (and vanilla). This will raise the temperature of the eggs so it is safe for children and pregnant women to drink. That being said, I also left out the rum and served it on the side : ). This received rave reviews from all! Thanks for sharing!
This is an extraordinary eggnog recipe, but my guests found it way too sweet. I halved the sugar and I also included the egg whites.
Awesome! I just made a double batch of it. I did change a few things though. I used powdered sugar instead of granulated. I used 2 cups of spiced rum, 2 cups of brandy, and 1/4 cup whiskey.
Thanks for the recipe!
My kids LOVED this more than store bought! It also tastes great in Eggnog bread recipes!! Highly recommend and very easy to make.
Made this last Christmas and everyone raved! One change I made was straining egg nog just before serving. I also added extra freshly grated nutmeg in each glass.
I used this recipe because I needed to utilize 6 egg yolks from a dessert I made. It was my first eggnog, I have made coquito before (and realized I love it more), but this recipe is different from coquito. The texture was creamy and milky. I used less sugar and less rum (white rum), but I think spirit gives an extra kick and makes the eggnog tastier. In my opinion, this eggnog needs more spices, so I added cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg in the bottle. Overall, this is a delicious eggnog and easy to make too.
All I can say we had a great party! Everyone loves this eggnog. It went very quickly!
My Husband followed this recipe and it was the HIT of our annual Christmas party...destined to be a classic from now on. Very creamy and delicious!
