If you have intolerance to eggs, you can simply eliminate it from the ingredients. Instead of using eggs, you can simply use a condensed milk as a substitute in making your favorite eggnog. Adding a whisky to your eggnog is just optional. See the process and the ingredients:
- 1Condensed milkAdvertisement
- 21/4 cup (1/3 will do as well) of bourbon
- 3A pint of whipping cream
- 4Half gallon of fresh milk
- 5Grated nutmeg
- 1Whisk the condensed milk and bourbon to a medium sized bowl.
- 2Whisk a cup of milk.
- 3Pour the whisk milk in a Jar.
- 4Add the whipped cream to the jar.
- 5Fill with milk again
- 6Close the jar lid and shakeAdvertisement
Leave it for a couple of days in your refrigerator for best results. Same goes with the Eggnog using eggs that the longer you keep in for days the better.
- You can use bourbon as an alternative to whiskey.
- Sprinkle nutmeg on your eggnog before serving if you want.
