A potent holiday party eggnog drink

Eggnog is a traditional holiday party drink. This recipe makes a rich and powerful eggnog.


(Serves 20)


  1. Beat yolks until light. Add sugar and mix well. Add milk and rum. Mix well, then chill for at least 3 hours.
  2. One hour before serving, whip cream and stir into chilled mixture. Return to refrigerator for an hour.
  3. Serve in punch cups and dust with nutmeg.


This stuff is POTENT, even if you reduce the rum by half. Brandy, dark rum or bourbon may be substituted for the light rum. If you prefer a nonalcoholic eggnog, leave out the booze altogether. With or without booze, this eggnog is very rich, and very good.


Difficulty: easy.
Time: 5 minutes preparation, 3 or more hours cooling.
Precision: approximate measurement OK.
