Easy Homemade Eggnog Recipe
No Christmas is complete without a Homemade Eggnog recipe for parties and gatherings!
If you’re not a fan of Eggnog but have only had the store bought version that comes in a carton, then this Homemade Eggnog Recipe is for you!! That was me…going through life thinking I wasn’t a fan of this awesome Christmas tradition. I thought it was too sweet and just overall not for me.
That all changed when my Mom showed up to our house with a pitcher of her now famous Traditional Eggnog recipe and made me taste it. I protested by saying I knew I didn’t like Eggnog, but she didn’t take no for an answer…and I’m so glad! This version is so different. It’s rich and full of flavor, not just sweetness, and is SO smooth and delicious. What have I been missing all my post 21 year old life?!!!
Add this Traditional Eggnog Recipe to your holiday traditions. Homemade Eggnog is the way to go!
Is it safe to drink Eggnog?
We used pasteurized eggs to make this homemade eggnog recipe because after testing it both ways, Mom decided she liked the uncooked egg version best. It’s also easier. Most people say Eggnog is safe either way, but using pasteurized eggs just takes the stress out of the equation.
Mom talks a lot more about the research she did in her blog post with the recipe. One brand I really like is Safest Choice Eggs. They make using raw eggs safe and delicious.
