You can buy festive eggnog in a carton at your local supermarket, or you can make thick and delicious one yourself. It’s easy and it’s very good! Here is my favourite recipe for you:



  • 4 cups of milk
  • 1-1/3 cups of sugar
  • 12 egg yolks
  • 1 cup of heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup of bourbon or rum (optional)
  • Ground nutmeg


  1. In a medium saucepan, whisk milk and sugar together over medium heat, until sugar is dissolved – about 2 minutes
  2. In a large bowl, whisk egg yolks
  3. Whisking constantly, pour hot mixture into yolks in a slow and steady stream
  4. Return mixture to pan, cook over medium-low, stirring often, until mixture is think enough to coat back of a spoon – 20-25 minutes. Do not let simmer.
  5. Quickly strain into a bowl
  6. Stir in bourbon or rum and chilled heavy cream
  7. Cool completely, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled
  8. Garnish with ground nutmeg just before serving
