Egg Nog from scratchThis quick post is so a friend can share in this recipe… but hey we are all friends here on the internet so give this yummy egg nog recipe a shot!  It does have alcohol in it so beware.


1/3 Cup + 1Tbs. Sugar

1 Pint Whole Milk

1 Cup Heavy Cream

3 Oz Bourbon

1tsp Grated Nutmeg

4 Large Eggs



The parts are made in stages and then combined, so firstly:

Separate Whites from Yolks. Yolks into one bowl and whites into another.

Whip yellows at high speed until they lighten in color.

Add 1/3 cup sugar.

Add Cream to Milk and then the entire mixture to the yellows.

Add nutmeg.


Add Bourbon


Chill mixture while cleaning mixer and then do this bit:


Whip whites at high speed to soft peaks

Add sugar and whip to stiff peaks



Integrate the yolk mixture with the whites by carefully stirring in.  Don’t destroy all the whites fluffy goodness as they give a lightness to the nog.
