Tips for making and storing Egg Nog

  • Lighten up your Egg Nog recipe by swaping 5% light cream for 35% whipping cream.
  • If you're making Egg Nog at home using raw eggs, heat the egg and milk mixture to at least 71° C (160° F). Cool it quickly in shallow containers in the fridge then transfer to a pitcher.
  • Cover and store Egg Nog in the fridge. It keeps for several days.
  • Put Egg Nog out to serve in a bowl of ice. It will keep for 2 hours.
  • Store-bought Egg Nog is pasteurized, but like all dairy products, you still need to check the best before date and store it in the fridge.
