“This family tradition involved even the kids at New Year's Eve. They got to help make it even if they didn't get to drink it. The beauty of this recipe is that every ingredient is one measure, which makes it easy to remember. Everybody from the great-grandparents to fraternity brothers have loved this one. I prefer Bourbon, but any whiskey, rum, brandy could be substituted. (If you use vodka, please don't tell me!) The old folks claimed the original recipe called for a Quart of Whiskey, but a pint is perfect.” - by LOOOBEEE

Gradually sprinkle in the sugar while continuing to whip until stiff. Fold the egg whites into the egg yolk mixture, and pour into a punch bowl or large pitcher. Serve in mugs or cups garnished with a sprinkle of nutmeg.

"This was fast even with my adjustments it only took 10 minutes! I have young kids so I changed the directions just a little....I cooked the milk, eggs, and vanilla until boiling and then removed fro..." See morem heat immediately and added the cream. Next, I whipped up the egg whites and folded in the sugar and nutmeg. I added the milk mixture to the egg whites and slowly stirred. I omitted the whiskey and we loved it!"
