Easy Eggnog FAQs

What kind of ice cream should I use in this eggnog?

Whether you go with ice cream that you’ve made or from a store, we recommend one that has lots of eggs in it. We have a few with that custardy consistency on the site, including the one listed in the ingredients.

How warm does my ice cream need to be to make this eggnog?

You’ll want it to be soft enough to scoop easily, so warmer than rock hard for sure. After that, it depends on how thick and icy you want that ‘nog. Make it with very cold ice cream for something closer to a milkshake, let it melt quite a bit for something thinner. Just don’t forget to put the carton back in the freezer!

  • Before you do anything else, place 2 coupe or martini or old-fashioned glasses or whatever stemware you’ve got in the freezer.
  • Add the bourbon, rum, ice cream, cinnamon, and nutmeg to the shaker and shake vigorously for 10 seconds. (If you don’t have a cocktail shaker, you can blitz everything in a blender.)
  • Divvy the creamy eggnog concoction between the chilled glasses. If you want, add a pinch cinnamon or nutmeg for garnish. Serve the eggnog without delay.
