Easy Eggnog Punch

This easy eggnog punch recipe will make your Christmas entertaining more festive and fun. And it starts with commercial eggnog.

No apologies here. The holidays are a busy time and everything doesn’t have to be made from scratch. It’s not about what you start with, it’s about what you end up with!

Hard core foodies may scoff at that but you can use your homemade recipe if you like.

The great thing about this mixture is that you can put it all in a punch bowl and leave it sitting out for guests to refill when they’re ready.

Serve eggnog the easy way with this deliciously simple Christmas punch recipe.

I first tasted this punch over 20 years ago at my boss’ Christmas party. I couldn’t get enough of it and was surprised to hear how easy it was to prepare. The whipped topping adds a creaminess while the ice cream keeps it nice and chilled. It’s almost like a milkshake!

To make this kid-friendly just omit the bourbon or make individual glasses without the alcohol as seen on our rustic Christmas treats table.

Easy Eggnog Punch Recipe

  • Start with a carton of commercial eggnog. I like to get the “light” or low fat variety if I can. It feels less guilty!
  • Best quality of vanilla ice cream you can find. I love to use Breyers Natural Vanilla for this.
  • Add the Christmas spirit with bourbon!
  • Cool Whip adds creaminess and bit of a topping to the punch.
  • Sprinkle with grated nutmeg to add more flavor.

Mix together the eggnog and bourbon in a punch bowl. A whisk works well for this since the eggnog is thicker than the liquor.

Add scoops of ice cream to the mix and stir a bit. You don’t want to melt it altogether as it will help keep the punch chilled and melt slowly on its own.

Top with dollops of whip topping and sprinkle with nutmeg.
