This eggnog daiquiri recipe is a treat for us New Orleanian during the holidays when it’s usually too cold for a daiquiri. The flavors are everything you would expect in an egg nog recipe but this one is spiked with spiced rum.
Eggnog Daiquiri Cooking Tips:
When the eggnog reaches, an internal temperature of 160°F it’s done.
Feel free to add a shot or two of rum or whisky to your eggnog. I like to add it to my glass then pour it into my eggnog.
Adding alcohol to the egg whites, “cooks” them and makes them safe for consumption.
Omit the alcohol for a great non-alcoholic daiquiri.
