The BEST Eggnog Recipe - EVER!

My mom makes the BEST eggnog I have ever tasted. I love the store-bought stuff, but if I had my choice between my mom's eggnog and something from Freddy's, I will choose my mom's. It is made with fresh eggs and I always have about a one second thought regarding salmonella - but it's a fleeting thought. I haven't been sick in all the years I've been drinking this stuff.

So...if you're feeling brave and want to serve a delicous eggnog punch at your Christmas party this year - try this recipe. You won't be disappointed.

Audrey's Egg Nog

6 egg whites
6 egg yolks
3/4 cup sugar (divided into 1/4 cup and 1/2 cup)
1 pint whipping cream
1 pint milk
1/2 cup whiskey
2 Tbs rum

Beat whites & yolks separately. Add 1/2 cup sugar to yolks while beating. Add 1/4 cup sugar to whites after beating until stiff. Mix whites with yolks - folding gently. Stir in one pint whipping cream and one point of milk (or just use 1 quart of 1/2 & 1/2). Add 1/2 cup whiskey & 2 tbs. rum to mix. Chill several hours before serving. ENJOY!

I'm sorry, I'm not an eggnog fan. The thought of drinking raw eggs, does not appeal to me in the slightest. Now, if you want to talk hot buttered rum . . . .

Oyy. I will eat chips that have dropped on the floor. I will drink milk on the day it is said to expire. I brush my teeth with real soap the week before my dentist appointment. I will nibble on my fingernails and swallow the little bits. I will let my dog kiss me on the lips.
