If you haven't had real egg nog you're missing out. I got this from esquire magazine years ago and it's unreal.

Take 12 egg yolks and 1 3/4 cups sugar. Mix until a pale paste. Then put the rest of this in.

2 quarts heavy cream
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp clove
1/2 cup rum
1/2 cup cognac

Yeah raw eggs , sugar, heavy cream and alcohol. Awful for you, but absolutely AMAZING.

That sounds fantastic and disgusting at the same time.

I don't like egg nog that is heavy on the cream so I use milk from a local dairy that is minimally pasteurized with cream still in it. But either way the key is the egg yolk to sugar ratio and that is close to the ration I use.

And I use Brandy. Real smooth with the right balance of sweet and creamy.

I've become quite the Alton Brown shill as of late, but goddamnit his stuff tastes good.

I made this the other night, and it was pretty good. Stiff peaks with a whisk about kicked my ass. Oh and if you want more than 6 cups of the stuff, you will need to multiply his recipe.

I bought a gallon of that shit yesterday. I mixed in a bunch of cognac and rum. I had a nip of it this morning, warmed me right up. I can't drink more then maybe a cup of it. I drank to much eggnog when I was a teenager at a Christmas party and puked my guts up.

My father makes terrific eggnog. Not from scratch but instead of using liquid nog he uses only eggnog ice cream, whole milk, and booze.
