I was excited to read about freezing Eggnog and their best advice on the creamy drink as an ingredient.
Well I hope you enjoy.
Buy eggnog after Christmas when store owners are ready to restock. For eggnog that comes in a carton, freeze it in its original carton up to 1 year. When ready to use, thaw frozen eggnog in the refrigerator overnight, and shake it well before opening. Keep canned, unopened eggnog in a cool dark spot in the pantry up to 18 months.
We prefer the refrigerated eggnog that comes in a carton versus canned eggnog (although canned tends to be more readily available). The refrigerated version has a richer consistency and more flecks of spice. We suggest using the refrigerated eggnog for many of the following recipes, but they'll work just fine if canned eggnog is what's available.
