Signature Eggnog

Due to popular demand, we’re re-posting this entry from our old blog, posted back in 2009!

We served up our Homewerx Signature Eggnog again his year, and it never fails to impress! Here’s the recipe:
Serves 12

  • 6 large eggs, separated
  • 3/4 cup superfine sugar
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 3 cups heavy cream, plus more for garnish
  • 1/2 cup Maker’s Mark Bourbon
  • 1/4 cup Mount Gay dark rum
  • 1/4 cup Remy Martin Grand Cru Cognac
  • Freshly grated nutmeg, for sprinkling


  1. Beat yolks in a very large bowl until thick and pale. Slowly beat in sugar. Whisk in milk and 2 cups cream. Mix in bourbon, rum, and Cognac. Cover, and refrigerate for up to 1 day.
  2. Just before serving, beat whites until stiff peaks form. Fold whites into eggnog. Whisk remaining 1 cup cream until stiff peaks form, and fold into eggnog. (Alternatively, you can fold half the whipped cream into eggnog, and top with remaining half.) Sprinkle with nutmeg.
