I used purchased eggnog for this recipe. Eggnog or egg nog (either is correct) is a sweetened dairy-based drink that is traditionally made with milk or cream, sugar and whipped eggs. The whipped eggs give the eggnog it’s frothy texture. Vanilla is also a common flavoring. Liquors such as Brandy, rum,whisky,bourbon or vodka are often added to the eggnog. I add Bourbon to my Eggnog Alexanders for a festive drink. However, if you do not want an alcoholic drink, feel free to omit the Brandy. Just mix the eggnog and ice cream in the blender and top with a sprinkling of ground nutmeg and you will have a wonderful holiday drink!
The typical garnish for eggnog or eggnog recipes such as the Eggnog Alexander is a sprinkling of ground cinnamon or ground nutmeg.
