My husband's family recipe - it's very rich and very strong! (just like I like my men -- joking!)

It's not for kids!

pinch tips: How to Chill a Drink in 2 Minutes



30 Min


No-Cook or Other


1 lb
powdered sugar
3 pt
whipping cream
1 bottle
(fifth) of liquor - brandy, dark run, bourbon, or whiskey

Directions Step-By-Step

Beat the yolks to a froth (until light in color) and beat in the sugar. Slowly stir in the liquor (no sipping! You might get tipsy just smelling it!). Whip the cream and stir into the mixture. Beat the whites with clean beaters until light and foamy, but not stiff, and stir them into the mixture.
After the eggnog has set it develops a "crust". This should be cut through to quarter the "crust" and the eggnog stirred in the same direction. (because grandma said so!)
This eggnog has a different consistency and texture from most should be made at least a day ahead and kept cold. It makes a lot!
