This is my family’s Egg Nog recipe. It’s been handed down from generation to generation, and now I will share it with you and piss off my dead Grandmother…
Here is what you’ll need:
6 egg yolks
6 egg whites
2 quarts light cream
1 cup granulated sugar
½ cup confectioners’ sugar
1 cup cognac
1 cup Papa’s Pilar Dark
Here’s what you’ll do:
1.In large bowl, beat egg yolks until thick.Gradually add granulated sugar, beating until light.
2.Slowly stir in cognac and rum.Add 1 ½ quarts cream and about half the egg whites, beating until very well combined.
3.Beat remaining egg whites until foamy.Gradually add confectioners’ sugar, beating well after each addition.Continue beating until soft peaks form when beater is slowly raised.
4.Gently stir egg whites and remaining cream into egg-yolk mixture.
5.Refrigerate, covered, until ready to serve – sprinkle with nutmeg.
This will be the best adult Egg Nog you have this holiday season. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
