Homemade Eggnog. What’s better than eggnog and whiskey when the temperature has dropped to freezing, the kids are in bed, the Christmas tree lights are on and you and yours can quietly snuggle on the couch? Don’t buy that store made eggnog crap, it is highly processed, filled with preservatives and overloaded with refined sugar. This is a quick and simple recipe.

Four eggs (separate yolk from whites), 1/3 cup evaporated cane sugar (+1T cane sugar, keep to the side), 1 pint of whole milk, 1 cup of heavy cream, 1/2 teaspoon of freshly grated nutmeg.

Ok, start with the yolks and slowly whisk in 1/3 cup of sugar, then add milk, cream and nutmeg. In another bowl whisk the egg whites till you have soft peaks. Now add the 1T of evaporated cane sugar that you had put to the side and continue to whisk until you have stiff peaks. Chill the egg/milk/cream/nutmeg mixture and then slowly whisk in the egg whites. Serve at your convenience once your eggnog is chilled. Add bourbon or whiskey for the adult version.
