So how do you make eggnog? Well, you’ve got to have 3 basic ingredients—eggs, milk and some sweetener. Mix ‘em together and you’ve got Voila!--Eggnog!Pretty simple, eh? Yeah, even a child can achieve success by making eggnog in your own kitchen. And he can do it in a jiffytoo. That’s all there is to making a basic eggnog.

Now, how to make eggnog that’s a little more special takes a tad bit of imagination. Suppose you want a healthy, sugar free eggnog for your family breakfast. You don’t even need a recipe for eggnog. Just start experimenting. I did this very morning and here’s what I came up with—a sorghum sugar free eggnog.

Sorghum Eggnog Drink Recipe

Ingredients:

2 eggs, hopefully from free-range hens
2 cups milk
3 Tablespoons sorghum, subsequently reduced to 2

What I did:

Crack the eggs into a blender. Pour in 2 cups milk. Add the sorghum. Blend at a high speed until all ingredients, especially the sorghum, are thoroughly mixed.

Then I tasted this newly created recipe for eggnog. Would it be yummy? Or a flop? (I’ve had some of both. I once tried a root beer egg nog. Before I got the ingredients just right, my daughter’s comment was emphatic, “It’s horrible!”) In this case, the result was yummy-- too yummy. The three tablespoons of sorghum made it a little too sweet. Sorghum is like honey, very sweet. After a while, I let our daughter try it. Confirmed! “Too sweet!” she said, so I toned it down a bit—2 tablespoons sorghum instead of 3.

The recipe was really good cold. Then I thought, “Why not heat it up in the microwave and see what happens?” Turns out it was even better warm. It got a little frothy on top and made me feel all warm and happy inside. I knew we had a winner!

So, how to make eggnog? Make it any way you wish, just enjoy it!
