Simple Honey EggNog Recipe 🎄🍯⛄️

Honey eggnog is a delightful and flavorful variation of the traditional eggnog beverage, incorporating the rich sweetness of honey for a unique twist. Eggnog itself is a creamy and indulgent drink typically associated with the winter holiday season.

For those seeking an extra touch of indulgence, a splash of bourbon or rum can be seamlessly integrated into the mix, transforming the honey eggnog into a more spirited adult version.

The final product is a chilled, frothy elixir that boasts a velvety mouthfeel and a symphony of flavors. The honey eggnog is not only a treat for the palate but also a visually inviting beverage, often garnished with a sprinkle of nutmeg on top. Whether served at holiday gatherings or enjoyed by the fireside, this unique spin on a classic favorite promises to be a crowd-pleaser, offering a sweet and festive escape with every sip.


  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup Ginger Bread Honey
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Optional: 1/4 cup bourbon or rum (for an adult version)


  1. Separate the egg yolks from the whites. Place the yolks in a mixing bowl.

  2. Add the honey to the egg yolks and whisk until the mixture is well combined.

  3. In a saucepan, heat the milk and cream over medium heat until it begins to steam. Do not let it boil.

  4. Slowly pour the warm milk and cream mixture into the egg yolk and honey mixture, whisking constantly to avoid curdling the eggs.

  5. Return the mixture to the saucepan and continue to heat over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens slightly. This should take about 5-7 minutes.

  6. Remove the mixture from heat and let it cool to room temperature.

  7. Once cooled, stir in the vanilla extract, ground nutmeg, and ground cinnamon. If you're making an adult version, you can also add bourbon or rum at this point.

  8. In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form.

  9. Gently fold the beaten egg whites into the eggnog mixture to add a light and airy texture.

  10. Refrigerate the honey eggnog for at least 2 hours or until it's chilled.

  11. Before serving, give the eggnog a good stir and sprinkle a little extra nutmeg on top if desired.

Enjoy your homemade honey eggnog! It's a delicious and festive treat, perfect for holiday gatherings or cozy evenings by the fireplace.
