YIELD: Serves 4 to 6


  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup brandy
  • ¼ cup bourbon
  • ¾ cup whole milk


Place heavy cream and sugar in the blender.  Select a low speed and blend, gradually increasing the speed to HIGH until the cream is just whipped, 15-20 seconds. Do not overmix. Remove about ½ cup of whipped cream from blender, set aside in a bowl, and refrigerate.  

Add all remaining ingredients to the blender and blend on a medium speed until blended, about 15 seconds.  Chill eggnog in the refrigerator in the blender jar for at least 1 hour. Just before serving, add reserved whipped cream to blender and PULSE 2 to 3 times. 

Pour eggnog into cocktail glasses, garnish with additional grated nutmeg, and serve immediately.
