Dissolve the jelly in the boiling water. Leave to cool.
- Mix in the rum (or vodka or tequila). Set in a freezer, whipping with a whisk just before it sets in order to introduce air bubbles (for effect). Shake the blue curacao, peach schnapps, orange juice and pineapple juice and strain into a cocktail glass. Spoon the jelly onto the top.

- Separate eggs into yolks and whites in separate bowls. Beat egg-yolks with ½ of sugar, set aside. Beat egg-whites until stiff, then mix in other ½ of sugar. Pour the yolks into the whites and mix together slowly. Stir in milk slowly. Stir in ½ of cream slowly. Whip rest (½) of cream and fold in carefully. Serve at room temperature by ladling the eggnog into cups and sprinkling nutmeg on top.
- (Optional) Add in white rum and brandy to servings according to taste. Can be served hot if desired. Eggnog is a type of milk-based punch belonging to the posset family of drinks. It originates in Europe and its name may have originated from grog or from a small drinking cup known as a noggin. Eggnog typically consists of milk, eggs and sugar mixed together and may be served with or without added spirits. Other ingredients include spices such as nutmeg, cinnamon, coriander or allspice. Eggnog is typically served as a winter drink. Although rarely as good as “homemade” recipes, ready-made eggnog containing alcohol and “just-add-alcohol” versions are available for purchase in a variety of stores. It is sometimes added as a flavoring to food or other drinks.
