O eggnog, eggnog! Wherefore art thou eggnog? Okay, so maybe that is a little dramatic, but who doesn’t love eggnog right? This sweet drink is perfect for people of all ages and honestly the holidays are just not the same without it! Like pumpkin spice during the Autumn months, eggnog is the go-to treat for Winter. So with that said, here is a delicious homemade eggnog recipe to enjoy with your family this holiday season!
6 large eggs
1 cup of sugar
2 cups of whole milk
1 cup of heavy cream
Freshly grated nutmeg (used as a garnish)
Now let’s get to work!
The first step of this recipe is to separate your eggs; egg whites in one bowl and egg yolks in the other. Next, whisk the egg yolks and sugar together until the mixture is creamy (with a light yellow color).
Now as you’re whisking, add in the milk and cream. And to make this process a whole lot easier use the Cooks Innovations Zip Whisk! Its unique design makes whisking a breeze with just a push of the handle! Cover the bowl and refrigerate for about an hour.
In another bowl whisk the egg whites until they start to form peaks. Stir the egg whites into the other mixture to give the eggnog an extra creamy texture. Finally, sprinkle some nutmeg on top and sit back and enjoy!
There you have it! A tasty, homemade eggnog recipe for everyone to enjoy. And don’t forget if you want to make this an adult treat add in some bourbon or rum while you are whisking your ingredients together!
