Homemade Eggnog with Alcohol

Homemade Eggnog with Alcohol
(2 quarts)


6 large Fresh Eggs
1 cup Sugar
½ tsp. Vanilla
¼ tsp. Ground Nutmeg (see note)
2 cups Heavy Cream
2 cups Milk
3/4 cup Brandy
1/3 cup Bourbon (see note)


In a large bowl, beat eggs on medium speed with an electric mixer until very frothy.  Gradually add the sugar, vanilla and nutmeg as you continue beating until well mixed.  Now using a rubber spatula, stir in the heavy cream, milk, brandy and bourbon.  Refrigerate the mixture until ready to serve.  Then top each serving with a little nutmeg and a cinnamon stick (optional).  Best to keep mixture cold by returning to refrigerator or putting on ice.

Note:               It also helps to have all the ingredients chilled before starting the making of the recipe.

Note:               You could use Dark Rum in place of the bourbon.  The alcohol can vary to your own personal tastes.

Note:               Ground nutmeg works in this recipe but it is better if you can grate fresh nutmeg for both in and on this drink.

Note:               Lastly, if you don’t use alcohol, just omit it from the recipe.  If you still want a little hit of it, use a small amount of rum flavoring.  It is alcohol free.
