"I've loved eggnog since childhood when Dad made it for us plus an alcoholic version for the adults in the family on holiday occasions. realsimpledotcom had this to say: "Even if you have a traditional eggnog recipe you follow, you’ll want to tuck this away for spec needs & cravings. Whip up creamy eggnog w/o beating egg whites or letting the mixture sit in the fridge overnight." They continue to describe the prep process you see in "How to Make", but I also thought of 2 non-alcohol versions: 1) Add instant coffee granules or even brewed coffee to replace the alcohol for a coffee/eggnog fix - or - 2) Use dry hot chocolate mix or even chocolate ice cream topping for a chocolate/eggnog fix. The kids will love you for the latter. ENJOY!"

Step 1

In a med saucepan, bring the heavy cream, sugar & nutmeg just to a simmer, stirring to mostly dissolve the sugar.

Step 2

In a blender, blend the eggs on low speed for 1 min. W/the motor still running at low speed, gradually add the hot cream mixture. Blend until frothy (about 30 seconds more).

Step 3

Add the brandy (or choice of alcohol, if using) & blend to combine. Serve warm.

NOTE: For those among you who may worry about the use of raw egg, comments were made that the eggs will cook sufficiently w/the addition of the heated cream mixture. Another option would be to use organic eggs (preferably free-range farm fresh).
