You don't really need to age the eggnog for at least 3 weeks prior to drinking, but it will meld the flavors together more. (image by Flickr user Elana's Pantry)

Ingredients

12
eggs
2
cups granulated sugar
1
cup heavy cream
1
quart (4 cups) whole milk
1
liter (about 4 cups) bourbon, like Maker's Mark™ Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
1/2
cup Myers's™ Original Dark Rum
1/2
to 1 cup cognac or other brandy
1
pinch kosher salt
1
nutmeg

Directions

  • 1 Separate egg yolks and whites (reserve the whites for another use, such as serving this eggnog). Combine yolks and sugar in a large mixing bowl and whisk until well blended and creamy.
  • 2 Add cream, milk, bourbon, rum, Cognac (use good stuff), and salt, then stir.
  • 3 Bottle it right away and refrigerate until it’s ready.
  • 4 It’s traditional to wrap the bottle in aluminum foil, shiny side out, together with a fresh nut of nutmeg tucked into the foil for grating later. Keep refrigerated for at least 3 weeks, or up to a year(!) if you can.
  • 5 To serve (optional): Serve aged eggnog on the rocks with some freshly grated nutmeg on top. If you want to serve the eggnog in the traditional way, pour it into a punch bowl. In separate bowls, whip 10 egg whites and 1 1/2 cups heavy cream to soft peaks and fold them into the eggnog. Serve in punch cups, garnished with freshly grated nutmeg.
