  • 6 of our medium free-range eggs, separated
  • 150g of golden caster sugar

  • 300ml rum, bourbon or a mixture of the two
  • freshly grated nutmeg, to taste


  1. Whisk your egg yolks in a bowl with 100g of the caster sugar, until the mixture is pale yellow and thick.
  2. Stir in the milk, double cream and your rum or bourbon, and add a bit of grated nutmeg.
  3. Whisk the egg whites with an electric mixer until they are foamy and opaque and add the remaining 50g of caster sugar. Then whisk some more until soft peaks form
  4. Pour the egg liquid into a large bowl and fold the egg whites in until the mixture is well combined.
  5. Ladle the eggnog into glass tumblers and serve with a little freshly grated nutmeg.

We hope you enjoy this Christmas classic and don’t get too eggless. Remember to add extra eggs, milk and cream to your order.
