DIRECTIONS

  • Separate the eggs and store the whites for another purpose.
  • Beat the yolks with the sugar and nutmeg in a large mixing bowl until the mixture lightens in color and falls off the whisk in a solid "ribbon.".
  • Combine dairy, booze and salt in a second bowl or pitcher and then slowly beat into the egg mixture.
  • Move to a large glass jar (or a couple of smaller ones) and store in the fridge for a minimum of 2 weeks. A month would be better, and two better still. In fact, there's nothing that says you couldn't age it a year, but I've just never been able to wait that long. (And yes, you can also drink it right away.).
  • Serve in mugs or cups topped with a little extra nutmeg grated right on top.
