eggnog eggnog
  • You\'ll need:

  • 4 egg YOLKS*

  • 4 egg WHITES*

  • 1/3 cup sugar

  • 1 tablespoon sugar

  • 1 pint whole milk

  • 1 cup heavy cream

  • 3 ounces bourbon

  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

  • Instructions:

  • In a mixing bowl, beat 4 egg yolks* until the mixture is a lighter yellow

  • Add the 1/3 cup of sugar bit by bit while beating the egg yolks until the sugar has totally dissolved

  • Separately, in a medium saucepan, and over high heat, pour in the milk, heavy cream, and nutmeg

  • Stir occasionally until the mixture is at a boil

  • Once boiling, remove from heat and bit by bit, add the hot mixture into the egg yolk & sugar mixture

  • Now, add this combined mixture into the saucepan again and cook until the ingredients reach 160 degrees F (will need a thermometer for this)

  • At that point, you can remove the mixture from the heat, and stir in the bourbon

  • Pour the bourbon-infused mixture into a mixing bowl, and place it in the refrigerator to chill

  • After the mixture is chilled, beat the egg whites* until they are soft and fluffy, slowly adding bits of the 1 tablespoon of sugar

  • Once the egg whites are more stiff, they are ready to be added into the chilled mixture

  • You are ready to serve your eggnog!
