Homemade Holiday Eggnog Recipe

 

With this Homemade Holiday Eggnog Recipe you won't have to wait for the holidays to come around to enjoy this festive drink. This recipe is great for using in baking as well, if you're looking to add a unique flavor to a cake, pie or other confection. This thick, creamy, cinnamon drink traditionally include bourbon, however, if you're making this for your kids, you can exclude the alcohol. This is a great drink to make in large batches for holiday parties, but no matter the occasion, it's always nice to be able to make things at home that you'd normally have to buy at the store.

Serves: 12 ; Makes 6 cups

Ingredients

  • 4 large eggs, separated
  • 1/3 cup sugar + 1 tablespoon
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3 ounces bourbon
  • 1 teaspoon fresh grated nutmeg

Instructions

  1. Place egg whites into a mixer bowl and whip on high until they form soft peaks, adding one tablespoon sugar until they are stiff peaks. Set aside.
  2. Place egg yolks into a mixer bowl and mix on medium high speed until they are thick and creamy. With the machine running, gradually add the remaining sugar and beat until it is dissolved, about 1 minute.
  3. Add the milk, cream and optional bourbon, stirring until combined. Stir in the nutmeg.
  4. Fold the two mixtures together and chill well before serving or using.

Health Advisory:

This recipe includes uncooked eggs, which are not recommended for people with compromised immune systems.  Or use pasteurized eggs only.
