“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.” - by Don
Original recipe yields 1 gallon
- 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.
- 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 problem. ..." See moreAlternately, make sure the raw eggs being used are pasteurized."
"This sounds just like the recipe my aunt Shirley would make but not give us the recipe! Thanks! Her's was the best!..." See more"
"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 bourbon but ..." See moreit tasted fantastic. Everyone that had some said how light and easy to drink it was - not like store-bought eggnog that is very thick, heavy and sugary. This really is a great recipe."
