  • 2 large pasteurized eggs* (room temperature)
  • cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • cup brandy
  • ground nutmeg


  • Add the eggs to a blender and blend until a light creamy color.
  • In a small saucepan, heat the sugar, milk, cream, vanilla and brandy (optional) until it's steaming hot, but not boiling.
  • With the blender running on medium speed, slowly pour the hot milk mixture into the egg mixture through the lid.
    By adding a mixture of hot cream, milk and sugar to eggs in a blender you're able to get a hot, frothy eggnog that's delicious hot or chilled.
  • Serve hot in small glasses with some nutmeg grated on top.


*Although the eggs should, in theory, be cooked by adding the hot milk mixture, it's better to be safe than sorry, so I recommend you use pasteurized eggs for this recipe.
