I was thinknig about making egg nog cos we don't drink it here and i want to try it :)

Ok i found a raw egg recipe and im going to give PBear42's cooked egg one a shot (so whats the deal with the raw egg? to drink or not to drink?)

can u put baileys irish cream in there by any chance? we normally drink scotch so not sure how that would go in there. We have Baccardi rum (clear one) would that do?

im really curious as to how this "egg nog" tastes lol

thx

The problems with raw eggs are related to possible salmonella poisoning. I'm not sure if eggs from australia are subject to that possibility. Personally, if the eggs come for a reputable distributor and all those who would be drinking it are in good health with healthy immune systems, I'd opt for the raw eggs as equally as I would cooked eggs.

I have added rum, scotch, whiskey, bourbon, and vodka to the finished product. I wouldn't do the Bailey's because it has a flavour I wouldn't want to add to the flavour of the nutmeg/egg. Bailey's can do just fine on it's own.

Don't know about Australia, but this would be an extremely unusual time of year, here in the states, for drinking egg nog.

Well, I think it's still "winter" down under...

And VB, that bourbon still hasn't been opened.

I have never made eggnog with cooked eggs. The only cooked ones I've ever had are the ones that come in cartons from the grocery store, and I don't consider them "real" eggnogs.

I like Scotch, but have never used it in eggnog, and not sure I'd recommend it. Bailey's would be good, why not? Rum is one of the traditional liquors, but I think most folks use dark. Don't know why the light wouldn't be okay, tho.

I prefer Cognac or Bourbon in mine...

Might be a strange time to do it but, i just want to taste it LOL and yes it is winter down here, altho today it looks like spring lol we have a lot of diff alcohols i might try the rum i have see how that goes :) i have bourbon but hmm not a smokey flavoured kinda gal.

if you make a raw eggnog would the eggs have to be cold or room temperature?

we don't have eggnog here so i'll pretend its a good time of year to have it? I thought people served it cold as well?

thanks for everyones reply!

Yes, Rom, do drink it cold! Actually, after you make it, set it in the cooler for a few hours for the flavours to mingle a bit. The reason I suggested it's odd this time of year because it's so hot, here (it's a very heavy drink, hard to handle on a hot day). Plus, it's usually associated with Christmas.

When you cook anything, or prepare anything, it's always best to work with eggs at room temperature, but since this is meant to be served cold, I don't think it matters if you work with eggs right out of the cooler. Make it in the morning, and enjoy it in the evening. Sprinkle a bit of nutmeg on top, too.

Don't forget to post how you liked it, too!

Ya know, open a restaurant. Bring in a bottle of booze/wine and it's dinner for two. The booze could be converted to mega bucks at the bar. A cheap bottle of wine would get ya a couple of burgers & fries, and well you get the idea

Have fun & Enjoy!!!
