Looking for a homemade eggnog recipe to enjoy this holiday season? Check out the best eggnog recipe, and one for non-alcoholic eggnog, at Save.com.
When it comes to festive holiday drinks, it doesn't get more classic than eggnog. Eggnog has been around for centuries, traced back to medieval monks in Britain. Originally made with sherry, eggnog evolved after it made its way to the American colonies... and rum entered into the mix. Eggnog became a Christmas tradition in the United States in the 17th century and is still going strong today.
The basic formula for eggnog hasn't changed much over the years - just about every recipe you'll encounter uses eggs, sugar, cream, and some sort of liquor. Here, get the scoop on making fuss-free eggnog at home with this easy recipe from The Chunky Chef.
Homemade Blender Eggnog
Want to make a non-alcoholic version? You can use the same ingredients (omitting the booze), but we recommend cooking the eggs. The alcohol serves a purpose other than adding flavor and giving you a yuletide buzz - it acts as a preservative and sterilizer, so you don't have to worry about salmonella from the raw eggs. Follow this adaptation if you want to skip the liquor!
