Celebrate with a Festive Beverage On National Eggnog Day

December 23, 2013 By: Mary-Kate Dunphy

There are many things that go hand in hand with the holidays; a decorated tree, holiday music and something that only comes around once a year: eggnog! Eggnog is one of the most popular holiday beverages; therefore it’s quite suitable that National Eggnog Day falls on Christmas Eve.

Eggnog is traditionally made with milk, cream, beaten eggs and spices. However, if you’re like me and desire a little more holiday cheer in your drinks, add a little fun! People have been known to add white wine, bourbon, rum, brandy or even beer to their eggnog. Experiment and see what works best for your party!

If you’re feeling like being old fashioned, we have provided you with a recipe below that will allow you to make a festive eggnog punch with a kick from scratch!

Dos Nog

Dos-Nog
Created by Dos Equis

Serves 8
30 quail eggs, separated (or 6 chicken eggs)
1/2 cup sugar, plus 2 tbsp.
2 1/2 cup whole milk
1 1/2 cup heavy cream
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 tsp. freshly ground nutmeg
4 oz. bourbon
1 bottle Dos Equis Ambar
Cinnamon sticks to garnish — optional

Begin by combining ½ cup of sugar with 30 quail egg yolks. If you don’t have quail eggs, 6 chicken egg yolks will suffice. Beat in a stand mixer for several moments until the concoction doubles in volume. Mix in the milk, heavy cream, vanilla extract, nutmeg, your favorite bourbon and a bottle of Dos Equis Ambar.

In a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites and 2 tbsp of sugar until peaks appear, resembling the waves beneath Count Beaumont-sur-Mer’s majestic vessel. Fold the waves into the yolk/sugar concoction, chill, pour into glasses and garnish each with ground nutmeg, a cinnamon stick and conversation.
