Holiday Eggnog

I adore eggnog during the holidays. This is certainly a favorite.

Holiday Eggnog

  • 6 eggs, separated
  • 1/2 cup super fine sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups brandy
  • 1 cup milk
  • nutmeg (use for garnish also)

Beat egg yolks, 1/4 cup sugar, nutmeg, salt and vanilla together until very thick and light yellow. Slowly beat in brandy and milk. Cover and chill overnight. Save egg whites in container in refrigerator. Just before serving, beat the egg whites to soft peaks. Gradually beat in remaining 1/4 cup sugar, beat this mixture to soft peaks again, creating a meringue-like cream.Then slowly pour this cream over the chilled brandy mixture, folding in gently. Serve the eggnog and grate nutmeg over the top.
