This Dominican Eggnog recipe comes from my ever so talented Mother. She's been making this recipe for years and only makes it during the holiday season - so it's extra special!
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1½ cup water
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • ½ cup spiced rum
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 can condensed milk
  • 1 can evaporated milk
  • ¼ cup brandy
  1. Place the sugar, water, and cinnamon stick in a small saucepan and cook until sugar is completely dissolved and a syrup forms.
  2. Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, place egg yolks in bowl with spiced rum and vanilla extract. Whisk for 5 minutes until frothy.
  3. Drizzle in quickly the hot sugar syrup (remove the cinnamon stick before adding) and whisk on medium high for another 5 minutes.
  4. Add the condensed and evaporated milk, as well as the brandy. Whisk until incorporated.
