  • 6 egg yolks, lightly beaten
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 6 - ounce can frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
  • 1/2 6 - ounce can (1/3 cup) frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 quart (4 cups) French vanilla or vanilla ice cream
  • 1 28 - ounce bottle lemon-lime carbonated beverage or ginger ale, chilled
  • Freshly grated nutmeg or ground nutmeg, or grated white baking chocolate and orange peel twists (optional)
  • Strawberry Eggnog (see recipe)


  1. In a heavy medium saucepan, stir together egg yolks, milk, and sugar. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture just coats a metal spoon; do not let boil. (Should take about 25 minutes and register 170 degrees F to 175 degrees F on instant-read thermometer). Remove from heat.
  2. Place the pan in a sink or bowl of ice water and stir for 2 minutes. Stir in orange juice and lemonade concentrates and vanilla. Cover and chill for 4 to 24 hours.
  3. Just before serving, cut ice cream in small chunks or scoops; put in a punch bowl. Slowly pour lemon-lime carbonated beverage over ice cream. Stir in chilled egg mixture. If you like, sprinkle each serving with nutmeg or white chocolate and add an orange twist. Makes 22 (4-ounce) servings.


  • Strawberry Eggnog: Prepare as above, except omit the 1/2 of a 6-ounce can (1/3 cup) frozen lemonade concentrate. Substitute 2 cups fresh or frozen unsweetened strawberries. If using fresh strawberries, remove stems and caps. For frozen strawberries, thaw the berries after measuring; do not drain.
  • Strawberry Eggnog: In a blender or food processor, add strawberries. Cover and blend or process until smooth. Set a fine mesh sieve over a bowl. Strain strawberries through the sieve; discard the seeds. Stir orange juice concentrate, strawberry puree and vanilla into egg mixture. Complete as directed.
  • Strawberry Eggnog: If you like, substitute strawberry ice cream for the vanilla ice cream. Garnish each glass rim with a whole strawberry that's been split lengthwise.
