At some point in your life, you’ve wanted to know how to make eggnog. Well, you’re in luck. In the video above, we’ll show you a super simple and delicious recipe for how to make egg nog with Texas bourbon.

Eggnog keeps for a long time if you make it with alcohol. Booze also acts as a bactericide, helping to kill any harmful germs that may linger in the beverage. You can use a wide range of spirits in eggnog, but bourbon is the most common. For this recipe, we used bourbon from Balcones Distilling, a Waco-based distillery. Their bourbon is featured on our list of 13 Texas Cocktails and Liquors You need to Try.

Make sure to refrigerate your eggnog. You can also freeze it for long periods of time, so you can dip into the fridge a few months down the road if you want a sip of belated holiday cheer.

What you’ll need:

  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 pint whole milk
  • 3 ounces whiskey
  • 1 Tsp grated nutmeg
