Homemade Eggnog Recipe


1 Cup Sugar

12 Egg Yolks

4 Cups Whole Milk

1 Cup Heavy Cream

8 ounces Brandy

4 ounces Gold Rum

1 tablespoon Vanilla Extract

½ tablespoon ground Nutmeg


For safety, these eggs are cooked. This also makes a richer, creamer, more decadent drink.

Beat the sugar into the egg yolks until thickened and pale yellow.

Set aside.

Bring the milk to a simmer in a large saucepan over medium heat.

Slowly beat the hot milk into the egg yolks.

Pour the entire mixture back into the pan and place over low heat.

Stir constantly until the temperature reaches 150°F or the mixture is thick enough to coat the 
back of a wooden spoon.

Immediately remove from heat. Strain into a large bowl and set aside to cool.

In a small bowl beat the cream until it is slightly thickened, then fold it into the cooled egg 

Add the brandy, rum, vanilla, and nutmeg.

Stir well.

Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.

Serve ice cold in small glasses, or serve from a medium punch bowl filled with one large block 
of ice.

This recipe makes about 2 quarts (just under 2 liters).
