Traditional Eggnog Recipe with South African Brandy


Eggnog is a typical drink that you want to serve during the holiday season. A traditional delicacy that is so easy to serve as an alternative to fruity cocktails or gin & tonic. It’s delicious as a dessert too, quite similar to a Dom Pedro, without the ice cream.

Eggnog can be made with different liquors, like whiskey, bourbon, or cognac. In this recipe we’re using a proudly South African Parow brandy, available from most Checkers liquor stores.


  • 4 large Free-range eggs, the freshest you can find
  • ½ C Castor sugar
  • ¾ C Brandy
  • Pinch freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1½ C Full cream milk
  • 1 C fresh cream


Add eggs to the OmniBlend jug, lid on top without the cap, and start blending on low for a few seconds. Continue blending and add the sugar, for 15 seconds. Now add the other ingredients, and blend for a further 30 seconds. Chill in the fridge, and serve with a sprinkle of grated nutmeg.
