How to Make Eggnog:

Start by whisking the egg yolk and sugar together in a small bowl. Then, in a saucepan over medium-high heat, combine cream, milk, salt, and nutmeg and stir the mixture until it just reaches a simmer. Next temper the eggs by adding small spoonfuls of the hot mixture to the egg mixture.

What Type of Alcohol Goes in Eggnog?

If you would like to add alcohol to your eggnog, choose a drink with a high alcohol concentration to help counterbalance the sweetness of the eggnog. Common choices of alcohol to add to eggnog include brandy, rum, bourbon or whisky.

Is Eggnog Served Hot or Cold?

Eggnog is traditionally served as a punch at parties, and as such, is usually chilled or room temperature. However, warmed eggnog is also a delightful treat.

Eggnog is typically served cold; however, it can be served warm on a cold winter night. This eggnog recipe can technically be served as soon as the liquor and vanilla are added. However, the mixture becomes thicker and more flavorful as it chills in the fridge. If you are heating eggnog, use low heat and heat it slowly to avoid scorching the eggs or dairy. 

How Long Does Eggnog Last?

Eggnog will keep for several days in the fridge, especially if you've already added liquor (which acts as a preservative). Eggnog also tends to get better with time -- it gets thicker and more silky, and the flavors meld together more uniformly. 

Looking for More Holiday Cocktails?

If you would like your eggnog less rich, decrease the egg yolks from 6 to 4. Use 1/2 cup sugar if you would like it less sweet. We use 2% milk, but you can use the milk you have on hand. (Source: www.simplyrecipes.com)
