Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a very large bowl, beat the egg yolks until thick and pale yellow. Gradually add the sugar and nutmeg, and beat until well mixed. Using a wire whisk, beat in the milk, 4 cups of heavy cream, vanilla extract, bourbon, rum, and cognac.
  2. Before serving, beat the egg whites with a 1/4 cup of sugar until stiff, and fold into the egg mixture. Whip the remaining 2 cups of heavy cream, and fold into the egg mixture. Fold in the ice cream; gently stir to combine all ingredients.
  3. Sprinkle individual servings with additional nutmeg.
  4. NOTE: Eggnog can be refrigerated; however, the cream will rise to the top. Stir the mixture gently to recombine before serving. The amount of liquor can be adjusted to taste.
