 Recipe Information  
Category: Beverages
Recipe Created By: Tammie


2 cups bourbon
1 1/4 cups sugar
6 egg yolks
4 cups whipping cream

Mix all ingredients, and place in large saucepan. Heat to 160 °F while stirring constantly to prevent the eggs from clumping together and to provide a uniform temperature throughout. After cooking the mixture, refrigerate at once in shallow containers to allow egg nog to cool quickly.

Eggs must be cooked thoroughly to kill salmonella. The addition of alcohol will inhibit bacterial growth but cannot be relied on.

To make your eggnog safe at home, use whole, liquid pasteurized eggs or liquid egg substitute (Egg Replacer will not work). Using either product would mean no further cooking is needed.

If you choose to use shelled raw eggs, you will need to cook the egg mixture to 160 °F.

 Keep in Mind  
  1. Always read labels! Product ingredients can change without notice. Do not assume a recipe or product is safe for you. Contact manufacturers to confirm safety for your allergy needs.
  2. A check in a box on a recipe means you can make a recipe "free of" that allergen. You may need to use a substitution or alternative product to make that recipe safe for the allergies you are managing.
  3. If you need assistance with a recipe or ingredient substitution, post on our Food & Cooking support forums. You will receive personal help to alter a recipe to make it allergy-free for your child’s needs.
