  • Beat egg, then add sugar in a large bowl, use a whisker or an electric mixer to beat egg yolk until it becomes lighter in color
  • Then add the sugar slowly, making sure to beat the eggs when the sugar comes in.
  • Whisk until fluffy.
  • Heat up the milk adding both the nutmeg and cinnamon, pour the milk in a pot, turn on the heat to medium until the milk mixture is steamy hot, but not boiling.
  • Add half of the hot milk mixture into the eggs slowly, whisking constantly as the mixture comes together, then pour the mixture back into the saucepan.
  • Cook until the eggnog thickens, put on medium heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until the mixture begins to thicken slightly and coats the back of the spoon just a little.
  • Do not allow the mixture to curdle or it’ll spoil.
  • Remove from heat and stir in heavy cream; do this slowly and carefully
  • Then strain and chill, let cool for an hour
  • Finally stir in the vanilla extract, bourbon, a bit of nutmeg and whiskey. (If you have kids taking this, make sure to first separate their share before adding in the liquor)
  • Place in the refrigerator for a while and your eggnog is ready to serve!
