From O magazine. This eggnog tastes deceptively mild but beware, it packs a punch!
- 12 eggs
- 14 tablespoons powdered sugar
- 750 ml Bourbon
- 1 quart heavy cream
- 1 1⁄2 ounces rum
- freshly grated nutmeg
- Separate eggs, making sure you don't get even a speck of yolk into the whites, or the whites will not puff up well when beaten.
- Whisk yolks until pale yellow. Add sugar a little at a time, stirring continuously.
- Add bourbon very slowly, particularly when starting. Pour in cream slowly, whisking continuously.
- In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Gently fold into mixture.
- Gently add in rum, stirring softly but continuously.
- Serve with a sprinkling of freshly grated nutmeg.
This was very good and very rich. A little heavy on the bourbon and I will cut that back next time. Loved the texture that the egg whites added to the mixture. Made it light and airy. I used fat free half & half in place of the heavy cream and it worked well. Thanks for sharing. Made for PRMR Holiday Special :)
