OK girls...you can't blame me if someone gets salmonella!
This is made the old way without cooking the eggs. There is probably a way to adapt it but I never have...
12 eggs; separated
1 pkg powdered sugar; sifted
1.5-2 cups dark rum; divided
1.5-2 cups bourbon; divided
1 quart milk
1.5 quart whipping cream
freshly grated nutmeg
Beat egg yolks until foamy. Gradually add sugar, beating until thick and
lemon colored. Stir in 1cup of rum and 1 cup of bourbon, mixing well. Chill
Stir in the remaining rum and bourbon. Add milk and whipping cream,
Beat egg whites (at room temperature) until soft peaks form. Gently fold
into yolk mixture. Chill thoroughly. Sprinkle eggnog with nutmeg.
