|Don's Home Food-Drinks Drinks Newton's Amazing Eggnog|
Makes about 4.5- liters (16 to 20 servings)
Eggnog is a milk or cream-based beverage sweetened with sugar and spiked with spirits such as rum, brandy, whiskey or a combination thereof. Eggs, of course, are the main ingredient. And since eggs give eggnog its characteristic velvety texture and cloud-like froth -- the yolks build the custardy base and the whites add lightness -- there are no substitutions. Don't be afraid to play with milk-to-booze ratios, spirit selection/combination, and spice combinations to perfect the recipe for our own taste
Ingredients: 1 quart heavy whipping cream (well chilled) 12 large eggs*, separated 12 tablespoons granulated suger (3/4+ cup) 1 pint dark rum ("Goslings Black Seal" strongly recommended) (taste first, but add more if your taste buds require) 1 pint whole milk (or less as needed) Nutmeg (for "pretty" and/or taste)

You can also top it with whipped cream and add a cinnamon stick, but Newt's recipe doesn't need anything else.
