 Ingredients List

  • 12 Egg yolks
  • 1 lb Confectioner's sugar
  • 2 c Dark rum; brandy, bourbon,
  • -or rye
  • 2 -(up to)
  • 4 c Liquor (chosen as above; I
  • -use rum)
  • 2 qt Whipping cream
  • 1 c Peach brandy; if desired
  • -(I've never added it)
  • 8 -(up to)
  • 12 Egg whites
  • Fresh nutmeg and cinnamon to
  • -taste


My favorite is basically the recipe from "The Joy of Cooking".

Beat egg yolks separately until light in color. Beat in sugar gradually.
Add 2 cups rum very slowly, beating constantly. These liquors form the
basis of the "nog", and you may choose one variety or mix to taste; I
prefer rum. Let mixture stand covered for 1 hour to dispel the "eggy"

Add liquor, whipping cream and peach brandy, beating constantly.
Refrigerate covered for 3 hours.

Beat egg whites until stiff but not dry. Fold egg whites lightly into the
other ingredients. Serve sprinkled with fresh nutmeg and cinnamon to taste.
Yield is about 1 gallon.

This is a very rich, high-cholesterol, high-octane eggnog. If you use 4
cups of liquor in the second part, it will be *very* alcoholic; if you only
use 2 cups, it will still be pretty strong.
