Note:
• Do NOT substitute white rum for the spiced rum.
• If you do not have heavy whipping cream, you can substitute half and half. It will not be as rich, but that isn’t necessarily bad.

Eggnog has been around a loooong time. The etymology traces back to medieval times: where the nog part of eggnog may from the word noggin, a Middle English term for a small, carved wooden mug used to serve alcohol.

The Farmer’s Almanac lists George Washington’s Eggnog Recipe (which would have me on the floor but quick!)

“One quart cream, one quart milk, one dozen tablespoons sugar, one pint brandy, 1/2 pint rye whiskey, 1/2 pint Jamaica rum, 1/4 pint sherry—mix liquor first, then separate yolks and whites of eggs, add sugar to beaten yolks, mix well. Add milk and cream, slowly beating. Beat whites of eggs until stiff and fold slowly into mixture. Let set in cool place for several days. Taste frequently.”

Clearly eggnog has evolved over the years. A bit (ok a lot) less booze, a bit more egg.

This eggnog is probably the best eggnog recipe I have ever made or tried. It is smooooooth. People get a bit funny about raw eggs, so if it bothers you, consume quickly after making. If raw eggs don’t bother you, this is better day two.


As always, drink responsibly and please don’t drink and drive.

  1. Can you make with other ingredients beside the alcohol ones?I drink eggnog for breakfast

    • I am sure you could make it without the booze, Mary. You’d have a lot less servings and it might not be quite as tasty (maybe a tad more nutmeg?), but I don’t see why not.

  2. Karen Drake says:

    My daughter loves eggnog but can’t drink the alcohol, I wonder if this would be good without the liquor.

  3. Margaret Hardie says:

    Why are we drinking raw eggs; did I miss something?

    • I think you are one of the people I directed this to, Margaret:

      ” People get a bit funny about raw eggs, so if it bothers you, consume quickly after making. If raw eggs don’t bother you, this is better day two.”

  4. I think the thing “the funny people” don’t get is you need quality eggs if you’re going to drink them raw. This looks delicious and I can’t wait to try it!
