Brief Description

Makes 6 cups

What You Need
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
Mixing bowls
Stand mixer or hand mixer
Microplane or nutmeg grater
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.
