  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 Egg Yolk
  • 1/4 c Sugar
  • 1/2 Tbsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 tsp Peppermint Extract
  • 3 c Milk
  • 2 ounces rum if using
  • 1 ounce peppermint schnapps if using
  • chocolate syrup to drizzle optional
  • peppermint bark to garnish
  • whipped cream to garnish optional


  • In a large saucepan, whisk together eggs, egg yolk, sugar, vanilla and peppermint extract. Cook over medium heat for 5 minutes. Pour milk into saucepan and whisk into the mixture. Turn up the heat and cook until thick (eggnog will coat the back of a spoon).Remove from heat and let cool (or place in the refrigerator to speed up the process). Drizzle chocolate syrup along inside of glass. Pour in eggnog. Top with a dollop of whipped cream, garnish with peppermint bark chips and shavings and serve.
  • Enjoy!


This drink can be served as a martini or shooter or over ice. If you want to keep this alcohol free, omit peppermint schnapps and rum.
