How to Make Classic Eggnog
1Whip the egg whites until soft peaks form. Add 3/4 cup of the sugar gradually. Beat until stiff peaks form.
2In a clean bowl, whip the egg yolks until pale and creamy.
Add the rest of the sugar and continue to beat until the sugar begins to dissolve and the mixture thickens.
3In a large bowl, combine the yolk mixture, brandy, rum, bourbon and milk.
Fold in the whipped egg whites and cream. Top with nutmeg and serve.
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.
