“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! I've made it from scratch and with the modern equivalents and it's fantastic either way. Do yourself a favor and use a mixer for everything. Those who like eggnog LOVE this recipe. I never leave a party with leftovers.”

Original recipe yields 1 gallon

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.

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 qta. of milk. Raw eggs can be a problem. Alternately, make sure the raw eggs being used are pasteurized.

This eggnog recipe is just awesome! I made one alcoholic batch and one virgin batch and there was not a drop left at the end of our evening! I only used rum (two and a half cups) and no bourbon but it tasted fantastic. Everyone that had some said how light and easy to drink it was - not like store-bought eggnog that is very thick, heavy and sugary. This really is a great recipe.
