Homemade Eggnog


  • 8 large egg yolk
  • ¾ cup (150g) granulated sugar
  • ½ cup (119g) heavy whipping cream
  • 1 ½ cup (360ml) whole milk
  • 12 ounce (340g) evaporated milk
  • ½ teaspoon (1g) ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon (0.65g) cinnamon
  • 4 whole cloves
  • ⅓ teaspoon (1.67g) sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon (4.2g) pure vanilla extract
  • additional nutmeg or cinnamon stick for topping, optional


  • Whisk the egg yolks and sugar together until combined.
  • In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine the cream, whole milk, evaporated milk, nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, and sea salt. Continuously stir until the mixture starts to simmer.
  • Add a generous amount of milk mixture to the eggs and sugar, making sure it’s combined before adding more. Repeat until all of the milk mixture is whisked together.
  • Pour back into the saucepan and whisk constantly until mixture has slightly thickened and immediately remove from heat. Note: keeping mixture on the heat for longer than necessary will cause it to clump together.
  • Stir in the vanilla extract.
  • To serve, pour the eggnog into a pitcher and garnish with nutmeg and cinnamon sticks.
  • Store eggnog in the fridge for up to one week.
