Good eggnog is a difficult balance between the right amount of alcohol, sweetness, and ease to make. This recipe strikes the perfect balance.


  • 6 beaten eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 3 tbsp light rum
  • 3 tbsp bourbon
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • Nutmeg for topping


Step 1

In a large heavy saucepan mix the egg yolks, milk and the 1/3 cup of sugar. Cook and stir over medium heat until the mixture just coats a metal spoon. Remove from heat.

Step 2

Place the pan in a sink or bowl of ice water and stir for 2 minutes. Stir in the rum, bourbon and vanilla. Cover and chill for at least 4 hours or up to 24 hours.

Step 3

Just before serving, in a mixing bowl beat the whipping cream and the 2 tablespoons sugar until soft peaks form. Transfer the chilled egg mixture to a punch bowl and fold in the whipped cream mixture. Serve at once. Sprinkle each serving with nutmeg.

You can prepare the cooked custard mixture the day before. Cover and chill. Just before serving, complete as directed.
