What is Eggnog?

Eggnog is a rich, festive drink composed with eggs, milk, sugar, nutmeg, and bourbon.

Our version, on the other hand, is a little different. It's created with a creamy dairy-free milk combination – we adore hemp milk, but we also recommend almond and coconut. It's sweetened naturally with maple syrup and lightly flavoured with cinnamon and nutmeg.

How to Make Eggnog

Traditional eggnog is produced by mixing eggs and sugar, then adding milk and/or whipping cream, whiskey, and nutmeg. It may also be cooked on the stovetop and chilled before being blended with beaten egg white.

Our recipe, on the other hand, is fairly straightforward because it is produced totally in the blender.

We recommend creating your own dairy-free milk for this recipe for the greatest flavor and texture. We like a hemp milk-almond milk combination. Then use canned coconut milk to achieve the traditional thick, creamy texture of eggnog.

Add 1 ounce of bourbon every 8-ounce (1-cup) serving for a boozy version.

What Alcohol Goes in Eggnog?

Bourbon, brandy, or rum are the most common types of alcohol used in eggnog. However, we believe that our version would also be delicious with coffee liqueur, vodka, or dairy-free Kahlúa.

What Does Eggnog Taste Like?

The name implies that eggnog might taste "eggy," yet the flavor profile is far more sweet than savory. In reality, a glass of eggnog tastes like the farthest thing from morning eggs or a hearty supper meal — it tastes like melting ice cream in a glass that magically warms your throat and stomach as you sip it.
