Whip up frothy, creamy eggnog without beating egg whites or chilling in the fridge overnight. Our straightforward method doesn’t even require a stand mixer. Instead, we used our trusty blender to whirl a few eggs and then added a simmering mixture of heavy cream, sugar, and nutmeg. Blend everything until frothy, add brandy (or Bourbon or cognac), if desired, and you’re ready to enjoy the classic cocktail, preferably under a warm blanket next to a crackling fire.


  • 2 cups heavy cream

  • ½ cup sugar

  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg

  • 4 large eggs

  • ¾ cup brandy


  1. In a medium saucepan, bring the heavy cream, sugar, and nutmeg just to a simmer.

  2. In a blender, blend the eggs on low for 1 minute, and then gradually add the hot cream mixture. Blend until frothy, about 30 seconds more, and then add brandy, blending to combine. Serve warm.
