Classic Homemade Eggnog

classic homemade eggnog

This eggnog is simply made with just a few ingredients, is refined sugar-free, and has a dairy-free option!



  1. Add the milk, cream, maple syrup, salt, cinnamon, cloves, and allspice to a saucepan over medium heat and cook for 4-7 minutes, until the mixture just begins to bubble.
  2. Remove the milk mixture from heat and let sit for 2-3 minutes. Whisk the egg yolks in a large bowl, then slowly pour the milk into the eggs, whisking constantly, until fully combined.
  3. Refrigerate for 3-4 hours, until cold, then strain out the spices, and stir in the bourbon. Serve each glass of eggnog with freshly grated nutmeg on top, and whipped cream, if desired.


*For dairy-free: Substitute full-fat canned coconut milk for the heavy cream and almond milk (or other dairy-free beverage of choice) for the whole milk. Follow all instructions as stated.
