Homemade Egg Nog Recipe

Egg nog is a holiday favorite for many people. While it is readily available in stores, it is also easy to make if you have forgotten to buy it at the store. The following recipe is an old fashioned way to make this holiday drink.


  • 1 egg
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar
  • 2/3 cup of milk (I prefer almond milk)
  • 1 tablespoon of wine or liqueur of your choice


Separate egg yolk and white. Whisk egg white with the salt until frothy. Beat egg yolk until blended with sugar. Add milk (and liqueur if desired) to egg white. Then, combine with egg yolk/sugar mixture. Add cinnamon and/or nutmeg to taste. Enjoy.

Fast Fact: Did you know that eggs contain important amino acids as well as iron, vitamin A, D and B?
