Eggnog as in “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” – Drinking like the Griswolds

It’s a fixed ritual during the Christmas season: the whole family comes together and watches the Christmas comedy “Schöne Bescherung” together. Like the Griswold family, we drink American eggnog with it.

Ingredient list for 8 portions

3 eggs
150 g icing sugar
1 pck. vanilla sugar
1 pck. bourbon vanilla sugar
¼ Litres of cream
¼ Litres of milk
¼ Litres of whisky
2 tablespoons of rum

We personally love our eggnog with whisky, if you don’t like whisky, you can replace it with cognac. Especially “Maker’s Mark Kentucky Straight Bourbon” *. This Bourbon Whisky smells already pure like fresh cookie dough and fits perfectly into a Christmas punch recipe.


  1. Separate yolk from egg white
  2. Beat the egg yolks and sugar to a frothy, light creamy mixture.
  3. Beat the egg whites until firm and fold into the egg cream with a whisk.
  4. Whip cream until stiff
  5. stir in cream
  6. Add the alcohol and milk while stirring continuously
  7. Cool for at least 4 hours in the refrigerator or in the December cold

Moose shovel glasses like in the movie

If you love the film as much as we do, you can remember the scene in which Clark Griswold punches his punch glass into the eggnog and takes a particularly big sip. You’ve certainly noticed these cute, kitschy glasses with handles that look like elk shovels.
