Rummy Egg NogPrint This
- 6 large eggs
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 2 cups whole milk
- 2 cups half and half
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Pinch nutmeg
In a large saucepan, beat the eggs then add the sugar, salt, and milk.
Turn the heat to low and whisk the mixture constantly until it becomes hot and thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Do not let the mixture come to a boil and do not let it thicken too much. It will become grainy.
Remove from the heat and whisk in the half and half, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. Cool completely.
Once cool and ready to serve, you can either add the entire amount of rum to the egg nog or you can add rum to each serving glass. That way these would be an option if someone chose not to have rum in their egg nog.
If you are adding the rum to each drink, add one part rum to 5 parts egg nog.
