Eggnog Recipe

This quick eggnog recipe is really easy to prepare. You may already have all the ingredients for this eggnog recipe in your kitchen cupboard, save maybe the cognac. The reason why alcohol gets added to this eggnog recipe is that without it you might get salmonella from the raw eggs. Fact, not fiction. I love making this eggnog recipe over festive periods and always on my husband’s birthday. It has become a tradition and we always prepare the ingredients for this eggnog recipe, a day before his birthday and store it in the refrigerator to combine and mellow. It is definitely a family treat and is always best shared with friends and family, or at least, that is the way I see it. I know that eggnog is not traditionally served on thanksgiving or special occasions in our country, but hey, I am a chef and I have to try things out. I once had American guests staying over during Christmas at a guesthouse where I worked and they politely asked if I can prepare eggnog for them. I phone my old pal, a master chef and he recommended this eggnog recipe, which he sent through in an email. I printed the eggnog recipe out and still have it to this day. Now eggnog is a tradition in our family. If you like this eggnog recipe, please rate it and share it with your friends and family using the social links found at the bottom of this page.
