Edenton Eggnog

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
1 hour.

Stir in the remaining rum and bourbon. Add milk and whipping cream,
stirring well.

Beat egg whites (at room temperature) until soft peaks form. Gently fold
into yolk mixture. Chill thoroughly. Sprinkle eggnog with nutmeg.

You could probably substitute Egg Beaters for the raw eggs if you wanted. No, probably not -- your recipe calls for separating the eggs.
