Although winter is a few weeks from officially starting, the cold temperatures are already inviting us to retreat in our homes and get comfortable. One of the things that you can't miss to get into the Christmas mood is traditional eggnog.

This drink is a must during the upcoming festivities, and Great Harvest in Kirkwood would like to share a simple recipe to prepare this delicious treat.


2 large eggs
2 egg yolks
1 cup whole milk
⅓ cup granulated sugar
⅓ cup bourbon (optional)
½ teaspoon vanilla extract

Mix it

Using a large sauce pan, mix the milk and vanilla abstract over a very low heat and stir frequently. Meanwhile, whisk the eggs, yolks, sugar and bourbon together in a large bowl until the ingredients are perfectly combined. Pour the milk and egg mixtures into a saucepan and beat them to create a perfect blend and allow it to cook for about 5 minutes on medium heat.


Once you are done, let the mixture cool and place it in your refrigerator. Let it chill for about 1-4 hours as this will allow the ingredients combine property. Don't forget to lightly blend the eggnog before serving to recombine it and add a dash of whipped cream for an extra flavor.
