How to Make Classic Eggnog

Step-by-Step

  • 1Whip the egg whites until soft peaks form. Add 3/4 cup of the sugar gradually. Beat until stiff peaks form.

    Set aside.
  • 2In a clean bowl, whip the egg yolks until pale and creamy.

    Add the rest of the sugar and continue to beat until the sugar begins to dissolve and the mixture thickens.
  • 3In a large bowl, combine the yolk mixture, brandy, rum, bourbon and milk.

    Fold in the whipped egg whites and cream. Top with nutmeg and serve.
  • 4Note:
    If you're concerned about eating raw eggs, you can safely pasteurize them at home by running hot tap water (about 140 degrees) over the eggs for 3-1/2 minutes before using them in the recipe.
