A Homemade Eggnog Recipe: Shaken Not Stirred


Last year, our former wine and spirits editor Jordan Mackay wrote up a fool-proof eggnog recipe guaranteed to yield a Merry Christmas, if you catch our drift. With three kinds of alcohol in it, there's no way you won't have a good time. That's why it has become our go-to recipe for holiday parties, mellow nights spent trying to warm up, and all-around Christmas cheer:

Boozy Eggnog

3 oz whole milk
3 oz half & half
3 oz brandy
3 oz amber rum
2 oz Madeira (optional, if used only use 2 oz each of brandy and rum)
1 egg
6 teaspoons sugar
5 dashes cardamom
5 dashes nutmeg
3 dashes allspice

Combine all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker and fill with ice. Cover and shake vigorously for at least 20 seconds. Strain into two tumblers. Sprinkle nutmeg on top of each glass.
