Christmas Eggnog Recipes

Eggnog has become not just a drink that’s
perfectly suited for the chillier months of the year, but a Christmas tradition. Although you can often pick up bottles and cartons of eggnog at supermarkets, it is much more satisfying (not to mention often more
tasty) to make it yourself.


Nothing beats a warm glass of eggnog to
keep the cold at bay during winter evenings. Making a warm cup of eggnog
for yourself is not difficult. First off, make sure that you have all of the
following ingredients:

  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon of honey
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 cup of milk
  • a dash of ground nutmeg

Get yourself a small saucepan and toss the
honey and vanilla extract in there together. Warm the mixture up on low heat,
stirring it together as you do so.  Now
add the milk. Don’t let the mixture boil. Then take that egg and crack it open
into a small bowl. Beat the egg and then add the honey, vanilla and milk
mixture. Whip it all together and pour it into a glass. Before enjoying it,
sprinkle a little bit of ground nutmeg on top.


Although nothing beats a warm eggnog on a
winter evening, a cold eggnog in the afternoon can really hit the spot too.
Since you can just pop it into the refrigerator once you’ve made it, it makes
more sense to make more than one serving. Gather up the following ingredients:

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 ½  cups of milk
  • ½ cup of sugar
  • ½ teaspoon of ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Crack those eggs open into a bowl and beat
them together with the sugar. Then add the milk. Make sure you mix everything
well before pouring it into a pan. Heat it up on medium, stirring it as it
thickens. This should only take you about five minutes to do. Strain it into a
bowl. Then mix in the ground nutmeg and the vanilla extract. Toss the whole
thing into the fridge and it will be ready to go after a few hours!

I’ll definitely be making my own eggnog over the Christms period this year. And to make it extra special, add in just a dash
of brandy or whiskey and top it off with a little bit of whipped cream!
