Day 303: Homemade Eggnog

The holidays are not over yet! I've been planning on making eggnog since November, can you believe that?!

My eggnog discovery happened only a few years ago. Ever since then, I make eggnog each year.

I love eggnog. The creamy drink is amazing, but the warm spices are the cherry on top! It's perfect for winter.

In this recipe, I cook the eggs with the milk so it's safe to eat. For this, you need a candy thermometer to make sure you have the right temperature. You can top the eggnog off with whipped cream or cinnamon sticks.

Eggnog is a simple drink that's great for cold days. This recipe is rich and full of flavor, I know you'll just love it!


|Level:👩🏽‍🍳|Time: 45 minutes|Serves: 3|



  • 6 egg yolks

  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • 2 cups of milk

  • 2 teaspoons ground cloves

  • 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg

  • 1 cup heavy cream


  1. In a large bowl beat (with a hand mixer, or just a whisk) your eggs until they are light in color. Add in your sugar and continue mixing for two more minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, heat the milk, cloves, and cinnamon for 3 minutes until hot but not boiling. Add half of the warm milk mixture into the eggs. Whisk constantly while pouring back this egg/milk mixture into your pot with the milk.

  3. Cook on medium-high heat until a candy thermometer reaches 160 degrees, F. Avoid curdling your eggs! Chill, for 30 minutes in your fridge and serve in cups.
