Old-Fashioned Eggnog

Why buy eggnog when you can make your own? Whip up homemade eggnog, a classic holiday recipe, for some good, old-fashioned fun. Gradually adding in bourbon will give homemade eggnog its trademark custardy, yet light, texture. However, you can omit the alcohol if you’re serving it to little ones. Since you’re dealing with raw eggs, it’s important to use the freshest and best quality eggs you can—you don’t want to make eggnog with the carton stragglers that have been in the fridge for at least a month. To reduce the risk of salmonella, we recommend using properly refrigerated, pasteurized shell eggs.
