Cinnamon Eggnog

Sip on a traditional and indulgent beverage this Christmas with our easy recipe…


  • In a large mixing bowl, beat six egg yolks until lighter in colour and slowly add the sugar while beating until fluffy.

  • In a saucepan heat the milk, cinnamon and cloves together until steaming hot but do not boil!

  • Carefully pour half of the milk mixture into the eggs, whisk constantly and pour back into the saucepan.

  • Heat the eggnog over a medium heat, stir constantly until the mixture begins to thicken but do not boil!

  • Remove the mixture from the heat, stir in the cream and strain using a sieve to remove the whole spices and any curdled bits. Leave the mixture to cool for an hour.

  • Mix in the vanilla extract, nutmeg and rum (optional) and place in the refrigerator. Serve warm with a cinnamon stick in each mug to stir.
