Spiced Spiked Eggnog – Homemade Eggnog Recipe using Rum is a flavorful cozy-warm drink that’s perfect for Holiday celebrations. It’s filled with aromatic flavors that are sure to please anyone and everyone. Eggnog is one drink that almost screams holidays and is traditionally made using milk, cream, eggs, some sorta spirit, vanilla and some nutmeg or cinnamon (either can be debated about 🙂. Till date, I’ve had many versions of it but I love the spiced version of Eggnog the best (you gotta try this Spiced Spiked Eggnog – Homemade Eggnog Recipe to find out WHY).
There’s something really magical the way the spiced-rum (in this recipe) other ingredients mix to give this rich, flavorful taste. Of Course, you can still be delighted by having the original more traditional version, but give this one a try – I PROMISE, you won’t be disappointed.

I started making this Spiced Spiked Eggnog version almost 6 yrs ago and haven’t changed anything in the recipe since then. It’s so simple and your kitchen actually smells divine. The slow cooking or I could say mixing of milk with spices releases this very Holiday-ish smell.
The spices which we are using is mild and mix amazingly with each other. If you want, you can make a dry mixture after roasting these spices and just use it next time to make any of your holiday treats.
For my vegan friends, who would like to have it, please use plain almond/cashew milk (not coconut or soy) as that goes best with this combination. I guess, its the nut milk that enhances and mixed well with the spices.
So, I’m making a HUGE batch of this eggnog to enjoy with friends & family this holiday. This particular recipe needs to be consumed on the day it’s made.
