Creamy Eggnog

The.Meal.Reel's picture
Holiday Egg Nog Recipe. This preparation can be a bit tricky because you have to work carefully when folding in the egg whites. Where kid gloves here and use proper technique or you'll loose all the air you've whip into the whites and the eggnog won't have the proper consistency or volume. Also, don't be afraid with the alcohol measurements here. It packs a wallop if you drink it to fast, but the dairy really mellows out the strength of the liquor. It has nice balance.
  Eggs 7 Large, pasteurized
  Granulated sugar 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Heavy cream 1 Pint
  Whole milk 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Dark rum 1 Pint
  Whiskey 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Apricot 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Ground nutmeg To Taste

Whisk the egg yolks and 1/2 cup sugar until light in color and smooth. Next, beat the whites and remaining sugar to stiff peaks, then fold them into the yolks. Fold in the cream and milk and finally the liquor.

When serving grate a little fresh nutmeg over the glass.

This is a recipe that my grandfather prepared on just about every holiday where the entire family came together. My mother has carried on the tradition where my grandfather left off and it's an affair I look forward to anytime we have a family gathering. Simply the best eggnog out there!
