    Eggnog Drink Recipes

    I remember the first time I tried eggnog.  For some reason, I thought it would taste good with Captain Morgan Spiced Rum....I was right. 

    So, for my favorite eggnog drink recipe, it is pretty basic. 

    3 parts eggnog (store bought non-alcoholic eggnog)
    1 part Captain Morgan Spice Rum

    Mix ingredients together thoroughly.  Drink and enjoy.

    However, if you want to get serious, you can make your own homemade eggnog.  This one, I picked up from  It makes about 16 drinks and the prep time is about 25 minutes.

    Ingredients you will need:

    • 6 eggs, separated
    • 1/2 cup super fine sugar
    • 1/4 tsp salt
    • 2 tsp vanilla
    • 2 cups brandy
    • 1 cup milk
    • Nutmeg (use for garnish also)
    1. Beat egg yolks, 1/4 cup sugar, nutmeg, salt and vanilla together until very thick and light yellow.
    2. Slowly beat in brandy (rum and whiskey are also popular alternatives) and milk.
    3. Cover and chill overnight.
    4. Shortly before serving, beat the egg whites to soft peaks.
    5. Gradually beat in remaining 1/4 cup sugar, beat this mixture to soft peaks again, creating a meringue-like cream.
    6. Then slowly pour this cream over the chilled brandy mixture, folding in gently.
    7. Serve the eggnog in a mug or punch cup and grate nutmeg over the top for garnish.
    To make your life easier, you might try a premixed eggnog, that already includes the alcohol like the Pennsylvania Dutch Eggnog. (Note:  In Indiana we call the Pennsylvania Dutch, Amish.)  Pennsylvania Dutch Eggnog is a blend of whiskey, rum and brandy blended with fresh dairy cream.

    Pina Colada Drink Recipe

    There are a number of drink mixes for pina Coladas, however if you would like to make one homeade.  Here is a great homeade Pina Colada Drink Recipe for you!

    1 ounce white rum
    1 ounce natural syrup
    3/4 cup pineapple juice
    1 ounce coconut cream
    2 cups chopped pineapple
    3 ice cubes

    Blend on high speed. 

    I had never liked pina coladas, until I had a neighbor make a homeade pina colada for me.  These are much better than using just a drink mix and adding alcohol.  Give it a try, and remember to drink responsibly!
