Eggnog can be one of those divisive holiday treats, but if you’re someone who likes it, chances are you really, really like it. That said, even the biggest eggnog fans aren’t keen on making a batch from scratch. Don’t worry, the store-bought options will certainly do. There are some truly delicious premade options available that you can pick up at your local grocery store this year. Below, we’ve rounded up our favorite store-bought eggnogs, and we think you’re going to want to try them all.

If you’re interested in spiking it, brandy is the most traditional spirit, but you can also use cognac, dark rum or bourbon. (Pro tip: since you’re mixing it with a flavorful concoction, don’t bother purchasing the top shelf liquor.) From there, go ahead and mix it in a one-part-spirit to five-parts-eggnog ratio. Get ready to deck the halls!


This little eggnog comes in a 12-ounce bottle, making it perfect for a small group. It contains the classic flavors and is available at most Whole Foods Markets. Grab it the next time you pick up groceries.

This eggnog comes in powder form, so you can mix it in with milk or a milk substitute. For the best results, allow it to chill overnight. Some Amazon reviewers even say that they love a spoonful or two in their morning coffee.
