Lighter Christmas Eggnog Recipe
This is a somewhat lighter Christmas Eggnog recipe, compared to the heavy richer versions.
I begin drinking it every year at Thanksgiving and continue through New Year's. It's my favorite!
Note: I substituted dark rum for the brandy and bourbon that the recipe calls for, and I loved the subtle flavor! So consider that a viable option, too.
Separate eggs. Set aside egg whites.
Put yolks in blender and beat till light yellow.
Sprinkle in 1 cup sugar and beat till thick.
Add bourbon and brandy (or rum) to the egg yolk mixture. Chill overnight (or at least 4 hours.)
After chilled, divide mixture into 2 two quart pitchers or put into a gallon pitcher.
Add 6 cups milk to this mixture, or 3 cups per container if divided.
Before you serve, beat egg whites till stiff and fold into eggnog mixture.
I like to sprinkle a bit more nutmeg in my cup right before I drink it.
Enjoy this eggnog recipe responsibly!
