Using electric mixer, beat the yolks and whole egg until smooth and light.ย  Add the sugar and beat until dissolved completely.ย ย  In a saucepan, add the milk, cream, salt and nutmeg, heat on high just until it simmers ( don’t boil) .ย  Remove from heat and pour it gradually while stirring on the yolk-sugar mixture.ย ย  Pour everything back to the saucepan and heat while stirring until it thickens.ย  Remove from heat, add the alcohol, let cool, then refrigerate.

Pray, Eat and be Merry!

  1. Hi Abby, thanks for sharing your homemade eggnog, should taste amazing! I can’t stomach the store bought stuff, grossly over sweetened. Wishing you and your family a safe & wonderful holiday season! Be well.

    • Homemade is always so much better than store bought, well at least the stuff I make lol ๐Ÿ™‚ Merry Merry Christmas!

    • Awww thanx ๐Ÿ™‚ I love making instead of buying my Christmas presents, I find it more meaningful when it’s personalized. Merry Christmas!
