Ike’s Bourbon Egg Nog

Our Presidents is celebrating the holiday season with First Family foods! We’ll be serving up festive Presidential recipes and White House menus all month long. 

To whet your appetite, here’s Dwight D. Eisenhower’s recipe for Egg Nog.  The former President and Five Star General made some serious stuff – scaled to serve a small army of revelers. Make sure you’ve got a quart of bourbon and a pound of sugar on hand!

Ike was an avid cook and kept a personal collection of favorite recipes. These were either typed by his staff or clipped from newspapers and magazines.  Take a look at more recipes from Ike’s cookbook here.
