What you’ll need for this recipe is a container of any vanilla ice-cream, 500 ml of any rum or whiskey of your choice (this will vary depending on how strong you’d like your eggnog cocktail to be), and 13 tablespoons of nutmeg.

Microwave the ice-cream for about 3 minutes or just until slightly melted. Once done, slowly stir in your nutmeg and alcohol then whisk it until combined. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours before service however the longer it stays the better it gets but not more than 24 hours.
