    1 cup brandy

  • 1/2 cup sherry wine
  • 1/2 cup Jamaican rum
  • 1/2 cup whiskey
  • 12 eggs, separated

How to make Traditional American Eggnog

  • Pour the brandy, sherry, rum, and whiskey into a bowl.
  • Place the egg yolks and egg whites into two separate, large mixing bowls. Set the
    egg whites aside. Beat the egg yolks until light and frothy. Gradually beat in the
    sugar until the egg mixture is light colored. Slowly beat in the liquor mixture. With
    the mixer still running, pour in the milk and heavy cream until thoroughly blended.

    egg whites into the milk mixture. Pour into two clean, gallon-size plastic milk
    containers. Refrigerate at least 5 days, or 10 days for an even smoother taste. Shake the container occasionally to keep the alcohol from separating.
