Cooking In My Kitchen: Uncle Bill's Egg Nog

This is a Holiday family favorite, Uncle Bill's Egg Nog.  Even as a little girl, when I could only get a tea spoon of it, that made me very happy.

The recipe:

6 eggs separated

1/2 cup of sugar

2 cups of whipping cream

1 cup of milk

Now this is where the fun happens

1/2 cup of Brandy (or Apple Jack)

1/2 cup of Bourbon 1/2 cup of over proof Rum (100+) I only had Barcardi.

Beat egg yolks and sugar together until they are thick, slowly add cream, milk, and spirits, then chill.

Before serving, whip the egg whites (this took longer than I thought it would take) and fold into chilled mixture. Chill again.

A while before serving add a sprinkling of fresh Nutmeg.....DON'T DRIVE OR OPERATE MACHINERY JUST SIT DOWN!
