6 Simple Steps to Homemade Eggnog

Eggnog is a funny drink. We can only bear to drink it for a few weeks out of the year and yet the holidays just wouldn't feel the same without it. Mike and I have been making our own for the past couple years, which tends to surprise most people. I guess they assume that it's difficult. Well, guess what? It's not! And I'm here to prove it.

There are a million recipes out there, some that will tell you to do all manner of things like boil the cream or separate the eggs. But we don't do any of that and are happy as partridges in a pear tree with our nog. Plus, with our single-serve recipe you can make just one at a time and adjust the sugar or texture to your preference. So why not ditch the 99-cent carton of who-knows-what and treat yourself to a delicious glass of fresh homemade eggnog this holiday?

Simply combine the following in a small bowl, whisking after each addition:
2 eggs
1 tbsp (1/2 oz) granulated sugar
2 oz heavy cream
1 tsp vanilla
1 oz spiced rum (optional)
dash of grated nutmeg

Now wasn't that easy? Cheers!
