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.)

of your favorite premade eggnog purchased from store.

How to Make Arctic EggNog Punch


  • 1Pour 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.
  • 2Add 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.
  • 3Using 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.
  • 4Add vanilla or rum extract to taste. You can use real alcohol if you prefer.
  • 5This step is optional...Add dollops of previously whipped cream to top of punch. I wouldn't use kool whip.
  • 6Sprinkle Nutmeg and or cinnamon evenly on top for garnish.
  • 7This recipe is so versatile and can be added to or changed up in many ways. The only limit is your imagination!
