Classic Eggnog

Holiday Eggnog

This is not everyone’s favourite, but as we inch closer to tree-trimming time, it’s hard to picture ringing in the holiday season without this unusual drink. If you have the foresight to make this a day ahead, the flavours will meld together really nicely. And, if you have friends who don’t usually drink eggnog, telling them you made it yourself is a great way to guilt them into trying it. Good luck!


  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 cup brandy
  • 1/2 cup rum
  • 2 cups vanilla ice cream, softened
  • 2 cups milk
  • nutmeg


  1. Put a heat-safe bowl over a pot of water, and be sure that the base of the bowl does not touch the water in the pot. Bring the water to a simmer.
  2. Crack the eggs into the bowl, add the sugar, and beat over the heat until the mixture is light and fluffy.
  3. Whisk in the brandy and rum, and keep mixing until the mixture has tripled in volume.
  4. Remove the mixture from the heat and let cool. Beat in the ice cream and milk, and pour into a pitcher until ready to serve.
  5. Pour into glasses and top each with a pinch of nutmeg.
