Grandmother's Eggnog

The REAL name of this recipe is Don's Friend Tonja's Cousin Toni's Boyfriend's Grandmother's Eggnog!! "Tonja was born in the 1940's and this is her cousin Toni's boyfriend's grandmother's eggnog, so I'm guessing this is from the mid-1800's and probably dates much earlier. The original recipe called for half milk and half cream, but I use half and half. Delicious and simple, but be warned, Granny apparently liked a kick! Do yourself a favor and use a mixer for everything. Those who like eggnog LOVE this recipe. I never leave a party with leftovers."

Ingredients

  • 6

    * 6 eggs

  • 1-1/4

    * 1-1/4 cups white sugar

  • 1

    * 1 quart bourbon

  • 1

    * 1 cup rum

  • 2

    * 2 quarts half-and-half cream

  • 2

    * 2 teaspoons ground nutmeg, or to taste

  • 1

    * 1 pint heavy whipping cream

Directions

1. In a large bowl, beat the eggs and sugar with an electric mixer until thick and pale, about 5 minutes. Gradually stir in the bourbon, rum, half and half and nutmeg. 2. In a separate chilled bowl, whip the cream until it can stand in a peak. Fold the whipped cream into the egg mixture. Pour into a plastic container and refrigerate overnight (if possible). Shake the container before serving. NOTE: For anyone concerned about raw eggs, it is safer to heat 1/2 quart of the milk, slowly add the beaten eggs to that, and cook at med-low heat for 2-3 minutes. Strain this into the remaining 1-1/2 quarts of milk. Raw eggs can be a problem. Alternately, make sure the raw eggs being used are pasteurized.
