Creamy, smooth, and cold –  this eggnog is a classic holiday beverage. Make it every year as a new family tradition.




  • 3 egg yolks, slightly beaten
  • 1/4 C sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 cups milk (I used whole milk)
  • 1/2 to 1 tsp. vanilla extract, to taste
  • ground cinnamon and nutmeg, for dusting
  • shaved chocolate for the rim of the glass, optional


  1. Combine all ingredients except vanilla in a double boiler. Cook, stirring constantly, over the hot water. As soon as mixture coats the back of a metal spoon ,about 10 minutes, remove from heat and let cool.
  2. Add vanilla and chill. It is not advised to double the recipe.
  3. If desired, strain once cool and before refrigeration to get a smoother consistency. Add a dusting of cinnamon and nutmeg before serving. This recipe makes 2 cups of eggnog.
