Egg Nog is a drink which is a Christmas tradition, made of heavy cream, sugar and egg yolks for a traditional flavour and richness.

These days you can purchase ready-made Egg Nog in the stores, but some of us prefer to get in the kitchen and make our own. This is a recipe I’ve used for quite some time, I hope you enjoy it!
