Easy Delicious Addictive Eggnog

I always used to think the idea of eggnog sounded disgusting. Who wants to drink raw egg, right??

So what if it's a posh drink consumed by the aristocracy. I just couldn't get past the rawness of the egg.

But in my search for delicious traditional things to wow my British mother-in-law with, I decided to give eggnog a try this year and began to google search for a recipe. Something simple. And easy. With the ingredients I could muster.

This is the recipe I share with you now, as modified by me.
The recipe for eggnog that has me dreaming of more.
The recipe for eggnog that has all-comers licking their lips and proclaiming: We love it! Raw egg be dashed!

It's so easy. And oh so delicious... Like a creamy spicy milkshake...

4 eggs
1 cup of milk
1/2 cup cream
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
1/2 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brandy or rum (I used Baileys)

Put all the Ingredients in a blender and whiz until mixed and creamy.
Pour into glasses and garnish with a sprinkle of nutmeg on top.

Serve to any rellies you want to impress.
Mmmmmmmm.... yummo!

{serves four people; add an extra egg per person, plus proportionally extra milk/cream liquor etc to serve more guests}

This is traditionally drunk at Christmas but I think I'll be serving it up on New Years Eve as well!

Yeah, not sure about the raw egg part either, although I do LOVE egg nog flavoring.

My kids keep begging me to buy some egg nog...

Maybe I'll cave in and make some!

I love the pic you have at the beginning!

Yummy! If you're not a fan of the raw egg bit, I made a fantastical cooked eggnog last week :)

I'm going to try it--I am not afraid of a raw egg. At least, not the ones that come from our local egg supplier.

(Famous last words?)

Hard to believe, but I've never made eggnog. Shocking! Thanks for the recipe and linking up!
