"Tonja was born in the 1940's and this is her cousin Toni's boyfriend's grandmother's eggnog, so I'm guessing this is from the mid-1800's and probably dates much earlier. The original recipe called for half milk and half cream, but I use half and half. Delicious and simple, but be warned, Granny apparently liked a kick! I've made it from scratch and with the modern equivalents and it's fantastic either way. Do yourself a favor and use a mixer for everything. Those who like eggnog LOVE this recipe. I never leave a party with leftovers."

  1. In a large bowl, beat the eggs and sugar with an electric mixer until thick and pale, about 5 minutes. Gradually stir in the bourbon, rum, half and half and nutmeg.
  2. In a separate chilled bowl, whip the cream until it can stand in a peak. Fold the whipped cream into the egg mixture. Pour into a plastic container and refrigerate overnight (if possible). Shake the container before serving.

It is safer to heat 1/2 quart of the milk, slowly add the beaten eggs to that, and cook at med-low heat for 2-3 minutes. Strain this into the remaining 1 1/2 qta. of milk. Raw eggs can be a pro...

This recipe just okay, and not nearly as good as others that use only egg yolks. Try Betty's Famous or the Early American instead.

This sounds just like the recipe my aunt Shirley would make but not give us the recipe! Thanks! Her's was the best!

This eggnog recipe is just awesome! I made one alcoholic batch and one virgin batch and there was not a drop left at the end of our evening! I only used rum (two and a half cups) and no bourbo...

Simple and yummy! I added Vanilla extract - about 1 teaspoon.

With a few minor changes - this is my grandmothers recipe (passed in 1990).. which she got from her grandmother.. so yeah, its back when food was real - so to speak. Our family has had this eve...

This has been a true favorite of ours. I started making this recipe in the latter part of 2009. We made this recipe at least five times throughout the Holidays last year. And we have never purch...

Ok, I have not tried this recipe yet but just because of the name I will tonight! That's just great.

This is really close to the one my mamaw made. But we separate the eggs and use wild turkey 101. It will cook the yolks, hence the pale yellow color. Then we beat the egg whites and the cream th...

Granny must have been a lush! I cut the likker in half and it was still strong!! Otherwise very good!
