Christmas Eggnog

What is a Christmas or Christmas party without eggnog, and to me it is not Christmas without you bring out the eggnog, to start the Christmas off right and in great spirit.  I know two types of eggnog, the old fashioned eggnog and the exquisite eggnog.


Old Fashioned Eggnog

6 eggs

1 cup sugar

1/2 tsp vanilla

1/4 tsp nutmeg

2 cup milk

2 cup heavy whipping cream

3/4 cup brandy

1/3 cup dark rum

Chill everything before starting, for best results. Beat eggs until frothy, then beat in sugar, vanilla and nutmeg. Slowly stir in brandy, rum, cream and milk. Chill again, and serve cold.


Exquisite Eggnog

4 eggs, separated

1 can sweetened condensed milk

1/4 tsp. salt

1 tsp. vanilla extract

4 cups (1 quart) homogenized milk

1 cup bourbon or brandy, optional Nutmeg


In large mixer bowl, beat egg yolks until thick and light. Gradually beat in sweetened condensed milk, salt, vanilla, and milk. In small bowl, beat egg whites to soft peaks; gently fold into sweetened condensed milk mixture. If desired, stir in bourbon or brandy. Chill. Pour into chilled punch bowl or serving cups. Garnish with nutmeg. Refrigerate any leftovers.
