What is Eggnog?

Eggnog is made of egg yolks, sugar, a mixture a milk and cream, and can be spiked with liquor. Some recipes include whipped egg whites as well.

Dating back to 17th century England eggnog was typically only served by the very wealthy. Before eggnog it was common to mix warm milk with wine or even beer. Yikes! These were called milk punch or “posset.”

Am I drinking raw eggs?

Traditionally most eggnog recipes were made with raw eggs however many countries now restrict the use of raw eggs in commercial products. It’s always best to read labels if you are concerned.

If you are making eggnog at home you can use pasteurized eggs or partially cook the eggs in milk to make a custard.

How to serve eggnog?

Eggnog is typically served chilled so you will want to make it at least a few hours before serving or transfer the eggnog to a large metal bowl over ice to cool it down quickly after preparing.

Have plenty of fresh whipped cream on hand, an assortment of liquor such as bourbon, rum, or cognac, and ground cinnamon and nutmeg.

I am OBSESSED with this nutmeg grinder. I have been putting nutmeg on everything that comes out of my kitchen this month since I just can’t stop using it! Coffee with freshly ground nutmeg is my new boyfriend.
