Warm, creamy and with a hint of chocolate, the White Chocolate Eggnog is the perfect holiday drink. The winter drink is quick to prepare and comes with a pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg as well as a good dash of spiced rum and cognac.
As we told you just recently, we are not the biggest mulled wine fans. But that doesn’t mean we’re completely averse to hot alcoholic beverages at Christmas time. Bratapfelpunsch, yes please! It can also be creamy and sweet – always bring it on Advocaat and the Amaretto cinnamon nog! So why not use the tried-and-tested formula during the Advent season and simply combine creamy, sweet and warm? Because such a cold winter evening literally calls for a glass White Chocolate Eggnog – a warming, creamy drink with spiced rum, cinnamon and white chocolate.

Homemade eggnog with white chocolate, cinnamon and spiced rum
For the classic eggnog, the American holiday drink par excellence, egg yolk, sugar, milk or cream and usually rum or brandy are mixed together. You can even find it in Tetrapaks in many supermarkets around Christmas time. But there’s nothing like homemade Eggnog, especially since the winter drink really isn’t complicated and can be prepared quickly. In addition to a pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg, we added some white chocolate to our Eggnog, which gives the warm drink even more creaminess. In addition, our variant is not quite as alcoholic, but if you like it stronger, you can of course increase the amount of spiced rum slightly.
In any case, we’ll be there for Christmas spice stars in one hand and a glass of warm White Chocolate Eggnog in the other and hope you can make yourself similarly cozy over the holidays. Make yourself beautiful!
White Chocolate Eggnog (recipe for 2 glasses)
200 g Sahn
2 egg yolks
30 grams of sugar
50g white chocolate, finely chopped + more for serving
1/3 tsp ground cinnamon + a little more for serving
1 pinch of freshly ground nutmeg
30 ml Spiced Rum
30 ml Cognac
70 grams of whipped cream
In a small saucepan, bring milk and cream to a boil over medium-high heat, then remove from heat.
Whisk together the egg yolks and sugar in a small bowl, then gradually add to the milk, whisking constantly. Heat again over low heat while stirring until the mixture thickens a little – being careful not to boil. Remove from the heat and stir in the chocolate until melted. Add cinnamon, nutmeg, rum and cognac and mix well.
Pour the eggnog into two glasses, top each with a dollop of whipped cream and serve warm, sprinkled with cinnamon and white chocolate.
