Playing all this holiday music on Country Legends 106-9 brought to you by John Hoffer Chrysler Jeep in Topeka made me have a serious craving for egg nogg--so I thought'd I'd share a recipe so you can make your own. Easier than running to the store to grab a half gallon!
12 large eggs, separated
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 cups whiskey
2 ounces rum
2 ounces brandy
6 cups heavy cream
Freshly grated nutmeg, for serving
1. Beat egg yolks together in a large bowl; whisk in sugar until well combined. Slowly whisk in whiskey, rum, and brandy until fully incorporated. While whisking, slowly add 4 cups heavy cream and whisk until well combined. Transfer to refrigerator until chilled, at least 2 hours.
2. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat egg whites until stiff. Fold into chilled liquor mixture. Add remaining 2 cups heavy cream to mixer and whisk until soft peaks form. Fold into liquor mixture. Transfer to a large punch bowl or serve in individual glasses. Sprinkle with nutmeg before serving.
