The following recipe is the ONLY eggnog I drink. Once you taste a sample of this batch you'll understand why.
TWEETIE'S CAJUN EGGNOG
1 quart half 'n half
1 quart heavy whipping cream
8 eggs, separated into two bowls
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup rum (preferably golden)
1 cup brandy or apple jack
nutmeg, freshly ground or store bought
- In medium bowl, whip the egg whites until the whites are shiny. set aside.
In large bowl (I mean Texas-sized Large bowl) add the sugar to the egg yolks. Mix on medium speed until sugar is incorporated.
With mixer on low speed...S-L-O-W-L-Y add the liquor in a thin stream. (If you don't add it slowly you will COOK the eggs!)
Once all liquor is incorporated add whipping cream. Add the half-n-half. Once they are mixed gently fold the egg whites into the nog on low speed. Sprinkle with nutmeg.
Keep cold. If you still have some leftover the next day you need to practice for next year! This will put a hitch in yer giddy up!
