Turner Family Christmas Egg Nog

Christmas Day egg nog is a long tradition in my family and I excitedly, and stubbornly continue this tradition every year. In honor of said tradition, here I share our simple yet delectable recipe.

Egg Nog can be purchased at your local grocery store. We recommend Sealtest brand. What is egg nog? It is more or less a sweetened concoction of milk and whipped eggs. I know right? Yum! Well as you likely know, tradition calls for our egg nog to be seasonally fortified.

We will Blend with a shot of dark or spiced rum. You don’t want to use top shelf yet certainly use a quality rum. We sometimes use Barcadi Black. However, our current favorite is the Spiced Carolina Rum from Muddy River Distillery in Belmont, North Carolina.

We also need a half shot of Cognac. Cognac is a high quality brandy distilled in the Cognac region of France. We prefer Hennessy Very Special Cognac.

Also needed is vanilla extract (please don’t use vanilla flavoring), cinnamon, and ground nutmeg.

We recommend blending in a stemless wine glass.

1. Pour one shot (one once) of dark or spiced rum.

2. One half shot (half once) of Cognac.

3. One quarter teaspoon of vanilla extract.

4. Pour six to eight ounces of egg nog. Dependent on how strong you prefer.

5. Stir.

6. Add a dash of cinnamon!

7. Add a pinch of nutmeg!

Serve chilled!

Merry Christmas and Cheers!
