2 c
bourbon
1 qt
whole milk
1 qt

Whip the egg whites until soft peaks form. Add 3/4 cup of the sugar gradually. Beat until stiff peaks form.

Set aside.

In a clean bowl, whip the egg yolks until pale and creamy.

If you're concerned about eating raw eggs, you can safely pasteurize them at home by running hot tap water (about 140 degrees) over the eggs for 3-1/2 minutes before using them in the recipe.
