Take an Eggnog Break

Eggnog Ingredients

If you like eggnog from a carton, just ignore this post. I forgive you. But if you don’t think you like eggnog, I promise it’s only because you haven’t made it from scratch. It’s time again for the annual Bert’s Eggnog recipe, which I have been sharing since 2005.

Cheers to those who look forward my recipe for Bert’s Eggnog each year! I’m a little like Susan Stamberg who annually recites her cranberry relish recipe on NPR and, despite its ghastly Pepto-Bismol coloring, swears it’s delicious. (I’ve had it and beg to differ!) Anyhoo . . . I PROMISE my eggnog recipe is the nectar of the gods and goddesses.

I’ve already responded to a number of frantic emails: Where’s the eggnog recipe?! I can’t force you to make it or drink it, but I strongly encourage you to do both.

People who have professed to strongly dislike eggnog have been amazed by its deliciousness and, frankly, its power. This is a knock-your-socks-off elixir.

Making the recipe isn’t easy. It requires at least three bowls (one for the yolks, one for the whites, and a third for whipping the cream). I recommend grabbing an elf because you’re going to want four steady hands.
