Brief Description

Makes 6 cups

What You Need
Ingredients
6 large eggs
1 cup granulated sugar
2 cups whole milk
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 to 1 1/2 cups bourbon, rum, cognac, or a mix, optional
Freshly grated nutmeg, for serving
Equipment
Mixing bowls
Whisk
Pitcher
Stand mixer or hand mixer
Microplane or nutmeg grater
Instructions
Separate the eggs. Separate the eggs, placing the yolks in a medium bowl and the whites in a large bowl (I recommend the 3-Bowl Method for this step). Cover the whites and refrigerate until needed, or freeze if aging the eggnog for longer than a day.

Whisk the yolks with the sugar. Add the sugar to the yolks and whisk by hand or with a mixer until the mixture is smooth, creamy, and lightened to a lemon-yellow color.

Whisk in the milk, cream, and liquor (if using). Add the milk, cream, and liquor and whisk until combined.
