Bourbon and Spice Eggnog

‘Tis the season and we can’t think of anything that says “the holidays are coming” more than a cup of creamy, spiked eggnog.

While our kitchen has whipped up several recipes, cooked and un-cooked we keep coming back to this simple and delicious concoction.

Is it safe to make your own eggnog?

Note: While we prefer drinking our eggnog with the recipe below, there are always concerns about using raw eggs. You can use pasteurized eggs or egg products or you can also pasteurize your own eggs by slowly bringing the eggnog base to 160 °F. Find more information here at FoodSafety.gov
