Sherry Egg Nog

So Christmas is long since over, and Egg Nog is not on the shelves anymore!  For some of us, that’s a pretty sad thought. (I LOVE egg nog)  I have tried egg nog recipes before that don’t taste good at all…  This one isn’t bad; and can satisfy that craving for Egg Nog; I think the addition of ice cream is really good.

Everything you need to make this recipe of eggnog!

We didn’t add the Sherry in our family, so we drank larger portions – I would say it gave us 4 glasses of Egg Nog.  I imagine the 12 – 15 servings that are indicated must be quite small; a courtesy drink, per say 🙂


Some people are against non-cooked eggs.  If this is you; add just the yolk and save the egg whites for scrambled eggs.  And nothing is better than a little nutmeg grated onto the top of eggnog, yum!
