Recipe by LOOOBEEE
"This family tradition involved even the kids at New Year's Eve. They got to help make it even if they didn't get to drink it. The beauty of this recipe is that every ingredient is one measure, which makes it easy to remember. Everybody from the great-grandparents to fraternity brothers have loved this one. I prefer Bourbon, but any whiskey, rum, brandy could be substituted. (If you use vodka, please don't tell me!) The old folks claimed the original recipe called for a Quart of Whiskey, but a pint is perfect."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

This was fast even with my adjustments it only took 10 minutes! I have young kids so I changed the directions just a little....I cooked the milk, eggs, and vanilla until boiling and then removed from heat immediately and added the cream. Next, I whipped up the egg whites and folded in the sugar and nutmeg. I added the milk mixture to the egg whites and slowly stirred. I omitted the whiskey and we loved it!
I halved the recipe & it still made a lot just for our family. (I wasn't making it for a party or anything.)
I left out the liquor as some other reviewers had done w/ no problem? My family said it was too thick & not sweet enough. I added more milk to try to thin it out & more sugar try to sweeten it up. My husband's drinking it, but I won't try this recipe again.
easy to make and easy to drink! your family and friends will love it!
It tasted awesome! We all loved it! =) We left out the whiskey though.
I didn't add whiskey, used Meyers Dark Rum instead. Flavor is not bad, just not hardley there. It just tastes like melted vanilla pudding. There are other, better recipes for eggnog here on this site.
Really just tasted like whiskey and milk. Not terrible, but no real Eggnog flavor.
I found this recipe to be pretty fabulous :) We did have to let it set overnight to really get those flavors flowing. I also garnished with cloves.
I love it! Add some cinnamon and a pinch of cardamom and ginger.
