Essential Spice Eggnog



    • Whisk the egg yolks and sugar together in a medium bowl until light and creamy.
    • Place cream, milk, and nutmeg in a saucepan over low-medium heat. Stir until the mixture reaches a simmer. Do not let it boil!
    • Add a big spoonful of the hot milk to the egg mixture, whisking vigorously. Repeat, adding a big spoonful at a time until you've used all of the hot milk. 
    • Pour the egg mixture back into the saucepan on the stove.
    • Whisk constantly for a few minutes, until the mixture begins to thicken. Temperature should be 160°F
    • Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla.
    • Pour your eggnog into a pitcher or other container and cover with plastic wrap. 
    • Refrigerate until chilled. Your eggnog will continue to thicken as it cools.
    • Optional: Serve with a sprinkle of cinnamon, whipped cream, and booze of your choosing. (We suggest Rum, Brandy, or Bourbon)
