DIRECTIONS

  • Combine first two ingredients and set aside.
  • Whisk together egg yolks, sugar, and nutmeg until blended.
  • Whisk the extra milk and heavy cream into the egg yolk mixture.
  • Transfer egg yolk mixture to a heavy saucepan and cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens slightly more than heavy cream (about 175 degrees F).
  • Be careful or it will curdle if you overheat it.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the reserved milk and cream.
  • Strain into a storage container and chill thoroughly, uncovered.
  • Stir in the booze (or vanilla for alcohol free egg nog).
  • Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
  • Serve sprinkled with freshly grated or ground nutmeg.
