How to Make Carla's Eggnog
- Separate eggs. Put whites in a bowl and set aside. Beat egg yolks, sugar, nutmeg, and flavoring on high speed until butter colored.
- Reduce speed and add the whites in a little at a time making sure each bit is fully mixed in before adding more. Once all the whites are added, place the beater in the mixture & pull it up to check and make sure there are no stringy whites left. If there are whisk by hand to break them down.
- Beat the mixture on low and slowly add the alcohol. Repeat with the milk, then half and half. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve and use within 2-3 days. Make sure to shake or stir well before serving. The nutmeg always settles to the bottom.
