Brandy Eggnog is a festive drink that is, at least in North America, associated with the Christmas season. There are alcoholic and non-alcoholic versions, but obviously the alcoholic version is the most commonly consumed.

Of course, one can always control the amount of alcohol in their eggnog to their needs or preferences. It is not a new drink, as it has been around for centuries, and has been associated with the holidays as early as the 1700s. It is extremely distinct from other cocktails in that it is a dairy-based beverage.


  • 4 large eggs
  • ¾ cup of sugar
  • 1 quart of cream
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon of nutmeg
  • ¾ cup of brandy (preference)
  • ¼ cup of rum


  1. Whisk together the eggs and sugar in a saucepan.
  2. Proceed to whisk 2 cups of cream in.
  3. Cook over low or medium-low heat for 5-10 minutes, based on your preference. Stir constantly, without letting the mixture to boil, until the temperature reaches 160 degrees.
  4. Remove from heat immediately, and stir in the cinnamon, nutmeg, and remaining cream, brandy, and rum.
  5. Pour into lidded bottles or jars and refrigerate for at least one day.


  • Saucepan
  • Kitchen whisk
  • Lidded bottles or jars

The eggnog, also known as milk punch or an egg milk punch, is a perfect holiday or winter drink, and brandy is the common alcohol associated with it. For maximum flavor, refrigerating for 2 days to trap in all the flavor might prove to be beneficial. The beauty of the drink is that it could actually be served chilled or warmed, depending on your mood, weather, or other factors. Eggnog and the flavor associated with it has become so popular that there are even pastries and coffee drinks associated with the flavor, all of which are particularly popular during the winter.

There is also one danger with eggnog that is not normally associated with cocktails, and it may be obvious: but one must never use raw eggs in eggnog, as that could lead to salmonella. The alcohol is not enough to sterilize it, which is why it is important to heat the egg-milk mixture enough so that this isn’t a concern. The bottom line is that the eggnog is known as THE holiday cocktail, and perfect for a holiday or winter party. Drink your brandy eggnog responsibly!
