Here's another recipe for the ever popular Eggnog. This one specifically uses rum - of which Mount Gay Eclipse is an excellent choice - and both egg whites and yolks in a slightly more intense version than the easy Brandy Eggnog. Both make single drinks and are great for the occasional eggnog for yourself or a small group. This recipe is worth the extra effort and the almond extract is an excellent addition, making this cocktail a delightful yuletide libation.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes

Yield: 1 Cocktail


  • 1 large grade AA egg, separated
  • 2 teaspoon superfine sugar
  • 1 ounce heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure almond extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 ounces Mount Gay Eclipse Rum
  • Grated cinnamon and nutmeg for garnish


  1. Separate the egg into two bowls.
  2. Beat the yolk until stiff.
  3. Beat the white with 1 tsp. sugar until peaks form.
  4. Slowly fold the white and yolk together.
  5. Separately, beat the cream with the almond, vanilla, and 1 tsp. sugar in a bowl until stiff.
  6. SLOWLY fold in the cream with the egg mixture.
  7. Add Mt. Gay Eclipse and stir gently.
  8. Refrigerate overnight, or serve immediately over ice in a punch glass or martini glass.
  9. Garnish with grated nutmeg and cinnamon.
