The quintessential holiday beverage gets a heaping helping of peanut butter! The eggs and peanut butter give this eggnog a creamy texture, and the use of nutmeg further evokes the spirit of the season. This drink can be made ahead and keeps well, so it’s ideal for any winter festivities you have planned!

Prep time: 2 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total time: 12 minutes
Yield: 5 cups


3 cups milk
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup Smooth Operator peanut butter
Freshly grated nutmeg, to taste
6 large egg yolks
1/2 cup bourbon or rum*
1/2 cup heavy cream

*Note: for a non-alcoholic version, simply omit the bourbon or rum


1. Combine milk, sugar, peanut butter and nutmeg in a medium saucepan; cook, whisking, over medium heat until sugar is dissolved and peanut butter has melted, 2 minutes.

2. Place egg yolks in a large bowl. Whisk in milk mixture in a thin stream; return custard mixture to saucepan and place over medium-low heat. Cook eggnog, stirring constantly with a spatula, until mixture thickens slightly, 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in bourbon (if using) and heavy cream; transfer to a bowl or pitcher and refrigerate until chilled. Serve chilled with additional nutmeg, if desired.
