It’s an eggnog bowl! Let the festivities begin!

Here’s a recipe for traditional – real eggs and cream – eggnog.

Enjoy! Cheers!

 

Ingredients

12 eggs, separated
6 cups milk
2 cups heavy/ thickened cream
2 cups bourbon
1+ 1/2 cups sugar
3/4 cup brandy
2 teaspoons ground nutmeg

Directions

  • In a large bowl and using a mixer, beat the egg yolks together with the sugar for approx 10 minutes (you want the mixture to be firm and the colour of butter).
  • Very slowly, add in the bourbon and brandy – just a little at a time.
  • When bourbon and brandy have been added, allow the mixture to cool in the fridge (for up to 6 hours, depending on how long before your party you’re making the eggnog).
  • 30 minutes before your guests arrive, stir the milk into the chilled yolk mixture.
  • Stir in 1+ 1/2 teaspoons ground nutmeg.
  • In a separate bowl, beat the cream with a mixer on high speed until the cream forms stiff peaks.
  • In yet another bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form.
  • Gently fold the egg white mixture into the egg yolk mixture.
  • Gently fold the cream into the egg mixture.
  • After ladling into cups, garnish with the remainder of the ground nutmeg.
  • Serves: 8
