Eggnog Daiquiri

If you’re a lover of holiday-inspired cocktails, you’re going to drool over this Eggnog Daiquiri. This adult-friendly rendition is filled with all the classic eggnog flavors we know and love then spiked with spiced rum and transformed into the ultimate frozen drink. 

Down in New Orleans, we love ourselves a good daiquiri. Therefore, it only made sense to develop a winter version of the iconic cocktail to enjoy when it’s too cold for a traditional fruity daiquiri! Trust me when I say that this eggnog recipe is a must-try. 

Eggnog Daiquiris are made with eggs, sugar, cream, nutmeg, vanilla, and rum. All you have to do is prepare your eggnog, freeze it into slushy form, then blitz it with ice and drink up. This is the perfect drink to keep in mind for your next holiday party!

Key Ingredients:

You’re going to need a few key ingredients to make this creamy holiday cocktail: 

Large Eggs

The base of any eggnog recipe is, of course, eggs. While most people use only the yolks and ditch the whites, you’re going to want to hang onto those whites to create the creamy foam that goes on top. 

Cane sugar

This is used both in the eggnog itself and the foamy topping. If preferred, you can swap it out for equal amounts of granulated sugar. 

Heavy Cream

You’ll need both heavy cream and half and half for this cocktail recipe. Together, they form the rich and creamy consistency we’re aiming for. 

Spiced rum

Make sure to use a quality rum that you enjoy the taste of. You don’t need anything fancy. It just needs to taste good! 

Nutmeg

The secret weapon to any good eggnog, nutmeg takes it from basic to exceptional. 

Vanilla extract

This adds subtle notes of vanilla, but more importantly, it enhances the flavors of the other delicious ingredients.

How to Make an Eggnog Daiquiri

To make this creamy holiday cocktail, follow these simple steps: 

In a medium bowl, whip egg yolks for 1 minute with a hand mixer on medium, until bright yellow. Add ¾ cup sugar, salt, and 1 teaspoon nutmeg, then whip for 1 additional minute.

Heat a large pot over medium heat. Then, add half and half, cream and remaining nutmeg, and bring to a slight boil (about 3 minutes). Stir ¼ cup of warm liquid into the egg mixture. 

Pour the mixture back into the pot and cook for 3 minutes on medium until the eggnog coats the back of a spoon. Stir in vanilla extract and ½ cup rum. Remove from heat and cool for 10 minutes.

Place eggnog in a freezer-safe bowl and place in the freezer for 3-4 hours, until a slushy forms.

In a large bowl, whip the egg whites with a hand mixer on medium for 2 minutes, until stiff peaks form. Slowly add ¼ cup of sugar and 1 tablespoon spiced rum, then whip for 2 minutes.

In a blender, add 1 cup crushed ice, half the slushy eggnog mixture, and then blitz on high for 1 minute. Repeat. 

Divide evenly amongst 4 glasses, then top with your foam and garnish with a sprinkle of nutmeg

Cooking Tips:

Ready for the best holiday cocktail you’ve ever had? Here are some of my top tips: 

  • Because eggnog is made with raw eggs, it’s essential to cook the drink before freezing and drinking. When the eggnog reaches an internal temperature of 160°F, it can be removed from the heat. 
  • For a virgin Eggnog Daiquiri, you can leave out the spiced rum and follow the rest of the instructions as listed. 
  • Serving a crowd? For a show-stopping cocktail, top your foam with a sprinkle of nutmeg and add a whole cinnamon stick for a stunning presentation. 
  • If you can’t get your hands on raw cane sugar, you can use granulated sugar or coconut sugar in its place.

Feel free to add a shot of rum or whisky to your eggnog. I like to add it to my glass then pour it into my eggnog.
Omit the alcohol for a great non-alcoholic daiquiri.
