Egg Nog (Non-Alcoholic)

For those non-drinkers this holiday season, thank goodness for Egg Nog. The spices and richness go a long way to creating a holiday feel with just simple eggs, sugar and milk. While vanilla and almond extract have some alcohol in them, only a quarter tsp. of each is pretty much a negligible portion.

There's something amazing about a made-to-order Egg Nog, one that makes a single glass with only freshest ingredients. Whipped cream and nutmeg on top seem especially indulgent--which is the point, really.
  • 1 whole egg
  • 8 oz. milk
  • 1/4 tsp. almond extract. 
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • freshly grated nutmeg
  • whipped cream
Add one well beaten egg to a shaker with sugar, extracts and milk. Add ice and shake vigorously for a minute. Strain into a mug and sprinkle nutmeg on top. Add a whipped cream top garnish.

  1. A non-alcoholic spirit is a complex liquid that has been blended to recreate the warmth, mouthfeel, and flavor of a traditional spirit. Non-alcoholic spirits come in many varieties, just like traditional spirits. The main difference, of course, is the zero alcohol content. Non-Alcoholic Spirits
