Eggnog Recipe
  • Separate eggs. In a large bowl, beat egg yolks while slowly adding sugar and bourbon.
  • In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until they become stiff. Fold the yolk mixture into the egg whites.
  • In a third bowl, whip the heavy cream until it forms stiff peaks. Fold the whipped cream into the egg mixture. Sprinkle with grated cinnamon or nutmeg.

*NOTE: When a recipe requires "raw" eggs as an ingredient, there is always a concern that potentially harmful bacteria may have invaded the egg which may cause illness in humans. Although the probability is low (1 in 20,000 eggs), the concern does exist; therefore, if you are concerned about using raw eggs, consider an egg substitute, such as pasteurized whole eggs, egg white substitutes, or meringue powder, to reduce the potential of bacterial contamination.
