Eggnog Recipe

This Eggnog recipe makes a delicious, thick and creamy old fashioned eggnog. A traditional holiday beverage made with Rum.with Rum.

To make a non-alcohol  substitute drink, substitute the Rum with rum flavoring.

Experience one of our pleasures from the past.  It was our first president, George Washington's favorite Christmas drink. Before he became president, he hosted a huge Christmas banquet serving cakes, pies, turkey, ham, and a myriad of other foods, including eggnog.

His formula included 12 eggs, 1/2 gallon of half milk and half cream, 1 quart of alcohol which included brandy, rum, sherry, and rye.

You will find our recipe tastes similar, except the alcohol content is low.


3 eggs

1/2 cups sugar

1 pint half and half milk

1/4 cup light rum

1 cup whipped cream


Beat together eggs and sugar until foamy. Slowly stir in rum. Mix well. Then slowly stir in milk. Fold in whipped cream.

Pour into serving glasses and sprinkle with nutmeg. Makes 4 servings.

Note: For those preferring a non-alcohol version, eliminate the rum and add 2 teaspoons of rum flavoring with the milk.
