A rich holiday treat. There are many variations to the recipe for eggnog, this particular recipe is a quick, shaken version. If you order eggnog at the bar or lounge, this will most likely be the version that will be made. You can also use an egg substitute, but a real egg is preferred. Whichever you choose, shake this cocktail more than you normally would to ensure all the ingredients are well mixed. Find more eggnog recipes.

Alternatively, either rum or whiskey can be used in place of the brandy. Read my comparison of the three eggnogs here.
