What's in Your Eggnog?

How do you make your G-rated eggnog X-rated? Personally, I like rum in mine. But, I wouldn't run from eggnog spiked with vodka, brandy, or bourbon, either!

What about you?

It's very thick and sweet if you buy it ready made in a store. Never having made it from scratch, I understand homemade is thinner. Either way, it's wonderful but surely could use a hand from a friendly rum bottle.

Vera, yes he used cream, he would mix eggs,bar sugar, beat it til it was smooth as glass, then add the hot cream pouring it into and over the batter in hot heavy cups, then we stir in a jigger of brandy.

If I make homemade eggnog, I use good brandy. I think the store bought overwhelms the brandy, so I then go with bourbon or rum.

Rye whiskey, brandy and light rum. That's for the homemade stuff. If I buy a carton of the stuff at the store I like to add Capt. Morgan's spiced rum.

Educator's Eggnog

I think you'll enjoy this recipe.

1 dozen eggs
1 quart whip cream
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup bourbon
1/2 cup rum
1/2 cup brandy

Separate egg yolks and whites. Whip egg whites until stiff. Add 3/4 cup of sugar to yolks and beat.

Combine yolks and whites. Add bourbon to egg mixture.

Whip cream.

Fold whipped cream alternately to egg mixture with brandy and rum.

Optional:
Sprinkle individual servings with nutmeg.

You can add 1/2 gin, if you wish, but I don't think it's necessary
