I came up with this one Christmas and my family just went crazy over it. I now serve this every Christmas and am frequently asked (begged) to bring it to holiday parties. It is a huge hit and can be made on the spot. Who doesn't like ice cream? (Sorry I don't have a picture- my punch bowl was lost in my last move...will post photo when I get a new one and make more punch for Holidays.)

  • 3 qt
    of your favorite premade eggnog purchased from store.
  • 1 gal
    of breyers vanilla ice cream
  • 1 qt
    half and half
  • 1 tsp
    vanilla or rum extract
  • 1 tsp
    nutmeg and or cinnamon for garnish and taste
  • 1 pt
    whipped cream for garnish (optional)

How to Make Arctic EggNog Punch


  1. Pour desired amount of pre made eggnog into punch bowl. I usually do 3 or 4 quarts depending on punch bowl size and taste. I change up brands of eggnog every year but do prefer what is available in the refrigerator section as opposed to the eggnog available in cans on the shelf.
  2. Add 1 quart of half and half (more or less) to taste. I do this in mind that vanilla ice cream is about to be added so I try not to add too much half and half. It just cuts the eggnog flavor a bit but this step could be skipped altogether depending on your taste. You could also use whole milk if desired.
  3. Using cookie dough scoop or ice cream scoop, make balls out of ice cream and drop into eggnog. I prefer the smaller cookie scoop. It is just more visually appealing.
    I say use Breyers because it has real vanilla flecks in it which looks nice and adds nice taste. But any premium ice cream using vanilla flecks would do.
  4. Add vanilla or rum extract to taste. You can use real alcohol if you prefer.
  5. This step is optional...Add dollops of previously whipped cream to top of punch. I wouldn't use kool whip.
  6. Sprinkle Nutmeg and or cinnamon evenly on top for garnish.
  7. This recipe is so versatile and can be added to or changed up in many ways. The only limit is your imagination!
