Hmmm .... lets see if I can remember the recipe .... 6 large eggs with one cup sugar and a teaspoon of vanilla extract in the blender, blend a few seconds, gradually pour in a quart of half-and-half, blend on low until blended, one cup either rum or brandy, blend until done. Sprinkle nutmeg on top.

Is it really that simple? And here I've been dependent on Corporate America to provide me my seasonal fix when I could have been whipping it up myself all year round!

What, no milk in the recipe?

I love egg nog (as long as it isn't too sweet) and was hoping to make some myself, just like MoMark.

Some brands are better than others.
The sickening sweet stuff I have to add a fair bit of rum just to make it palettable.

You can use anything from skim milk to half and half, Cold Canadian, but if you're going to put huge amounts of alcohol into it (which is entirely traditional, they used to make it at least one-third liquor) it's better if creamier, higher in fat. And of course it tastes better.

Yes, MoMark, in my opinion homemade is very simple and tastes better .... but some people prefer the heavy gumminess of commercial eggnog.

Oh, probably a cup of sugar is a bit too much for some adults, adjust to taste. It's been many years since I made the stuff, maybe use half a cup to start.

I love it too. It's Brandy for me all the way. I buy light eggnog, still fattening and yummy.

The recipe I used to use was very similar to yours.
I think I just used egg yolks, and left out the whites.
And there was plenty of sugar and cream in there, and I think I used dark rum.
Since then I have become more health-conscious and sadly, I have not made eggnog in some years. Life is short as it is, and Christmas only comes once a year, I really should make it again.

Sorry about this thread, I was a bit drunk last night. Towards the latter part of the evening, it was 3/4 Southern Comfort and 1/4 eggnog. I'm having a great time but it's 30F here...BRRRR.
