I personally cant stand the stuff. But my wife and other guest request it all of the time, we made some the other night.

We make ours raw as real eggnog should be.

4 egg yolks ( free range)

2 cups cream from top of fresh raw milk. preferably from Jersey cows.

1 cup of raw milk

3 shots of bourbon or more to taste

1/3 cup sugar

1/2 tea spoon fresh grated nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)

1/2 teaspoon vanilla (optional)

4 egg whites

In a mixer or blender add egg yolks cream, milk, bourbon, sugar vanilla and spices. run till completely blended and smooth.

Then take the egg whites in a bowl and whisk them to soft peaks.

Dump in the stuff from the blender and fold into the peaked egg whites. Blend but don't over mix and loose the yummy frothyness.

Chill well and serve.







MMM raw eggs, just like Rocky drinks.

I had a bad experience in high-school and eggnog is unfortunately deeply associated. It pains me because I used to enjoy it. Regardless, if memory serves me right eggnog should be a lighter bodied drink and not like the disgusting viscous commercial examples usually available.

Thats correct. It should be light and frothy. Nice for a sip or two, wouldnt want to drink more than that.

Love it!

But it doesn't like me. Heartburn central. I can have a very small amount along with a couple of tums.

I make an effort to have a cup or two around the holidays. I'll give your recipe a try beerocd.  ;)

1 carton egg nog from the dairy section, about 6 oz in an 8 oz glass. 1 oz dark rum. It's the finest of nog drinks.  ;D

synchronicity.
from this morning's Home Brew Digest......

Greetings, Beerlings! Take me to your yule log...

Over the years, Jeff Renner has been kind enough to provide us with his
father's Christmas eggnog recipe, citing its origin as a Four Roses
bourbon advertisement.

Folks, I've stumbled across the original! Four Roses Bourbon still exists,
and, while collecting custard nog recipes (custard nog dates back to
colonial times and beyond and it is like liquid crack! Addictive! C.F.
Berger makes a stellar version of it, but you know how we brewers are:
gotta make my own, and adapt it to my style and tastes...), I found their
web site (http://www.fourroses.us/drink_recipes) on which the following
recipe is displayed

Four Roses Eggnog

Beat separately yolks and whites of 6 eggs.
Add 1/2 cup of sugar to yolks while beating.
Add 1/4 cup of sugar to whites after they have been beaten very stiff.
Mix egg whites with yolks.
Stir in 1 pint of cream and 1 pint of milk.
Add a pint of Four Roses and 1 oz. Jamaica Rum. Stir thoroughly.

Makes 5 pints of the grandest eggnog ever ladled into a cup.
Serve very cold with grated nutmeg.

Though you have to read the recipe to get the bill of maerials, here is a
synopsis for your shopping list:

6 eggs
3/4 c sugar (Many of the nog recipes I've reviewed recommend
confectioners' sugar to granulated)
1 pt cream
1 pt milk
(or 2 pts half-n-half)
1 pt bourbon
1 oz rum

Jeff's original posting of his dad's recipe can be found here:
http://hbd.org/hbd/archive/3500.html#3500-9

To all: I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

See ya!

We make it every Christmas eve and it's a big hit.  This makes a whopping punchbowl full:

12 eggs, separated
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups spiced rum
1/2 cup brandy
6 cups 1% milk
Nutmeg
1 cup heavy cream

Beat the egg yolks with the sugar for awhile.  Then slowly beat in the booze.  Cover and chill.

Beat the egg whites until soft peaks form.  In a separate bowl beat the cream until stiff peaks form.

20 minutes before serving stir the milk and some nutmeg into the yolk mixture.  Fold in egg white and cream mixtures until just blended.

The 1% milk makes it light enough to have a couple.  Over the years we've used everything from skim to whole.  Skim is too light and anything more than 1% is too heavy.  We usually serve it with cinnamon sticks as well.  It's got a pretty decent kick to it.

I mixed some nog with some bourbon last night, and I have to say something about the alcoholic versions, I'm not a fan of.  They end up tasting hot in a strange way. 

I'm not a huge fan generally, which is probably a good thing given the health aspects of the drink!  I would much rather have loopy's recipe!   ;D

We had an In/Out here in Tampa for maybe six months before it closed down.  I guess it's a regional taste.

OK, enough of the InNOut talk, I'm getting hungry!!!

That is an exceptional sort of place for a fast food joint.

Ok, true story.. when that movie came out I was living at Radford and Magnolia in North Hollywood. The In and Out isn't near Radford damnit! It's at Lankershim and Califa.

My wife's grandfather lives near Lankershim and Strathern.  Didn't know there was an In N Out over there, might have to make use of that on future visits.

Tubercle's eggnog recipe:

 1. Buy what ever is on sale at the grocery store, the cheaper the better.
 2. Put unopened carton of eggnog in fridge
 3. What Loopy said... 4 fingers of Ol' Granddad (minimum) with one cube of ice...re-apply as necessary.
 4. After a couple of months, open carton of eggnog and pour spoiled contents down sink.
 5. Discard now empty carton.

I use rum as well.  I just can't get with bourbon and nog.  I toss it in the blender w/ ice cubes.  Kiddie glasses first, then add rum for the adult glasses.  Used spiced rum this year.  Its funny but everyone likes the ice cubes blended in.

2 pints bourbon
1/2 cup Jamaican Rum
1 cup brandy
1/2 lb powdered sugar
1/2 gal premium egg nog ice cream

That's boozy. You want a balance of creaminess and snockerability!  I just go with rum and cognac or bourbon and cognac, where the liquor is no more than 25% of the nog and the cognac is 10% of that. I scald my milk and cream, add sugar, mix, then temper and add eggs (4 whole and 2 yolks) which cooks them.  Add the booze and fold whipped cream and the last two egg whites, beaten to stiff peaks.

2 cups cream from top of fresh raw milk. preferably from Jersey cows.


That reminds me of a joke that I heard at the '95 NHC in Baltimore,

What do cows from New Jersey say?
"F#@kin' moo."

Post by: skyler on December 22, 2010, 04:03:43 pm
One thing I have to say is whatever egg nog you make, it will be better if you use Rye Whiskey (Jim Beam Rye is fine) as the alcohol. Way better than rum, brandy, or bourbon - rye just makes an egg nog great.

BTW, there's In-N-Out all over California now. I remember when we moved from LA to the bay area when I was a kid, we all got so sad about the lack of In-N-Out. Then they expanded northward.... Now I miss the PNW's Burgerville, but I certainly do NOT miss White Castle from my PA and NYC days.

That's the thing about this one... it's not. Maybe the ice cream smooths it all out? I can't explain why, but it's well balanced. Unless you are just referring to this nog's ability to whack you upside the head - then yes, you are right. But it tastes great!

The Ultimate Eggnogg - Alton Brown

4 egg yolks
1/3 cup sugar, plus 1 tablespoon
1 pint whole milk
1 cup heavy cream
3 ounces bourbon
1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
4 egg whites

In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the egg yolks until they lighten in color. Gradually add the 1/3 cup sugar and continue to beat until it is completely dissolved. Add the milk, cream, bourbon and nutmeg and stir to combine.

Place the egg whites in the bowl of a stand mixer and beat to soft peaks. With the mixer still running gradually add the 1 tablespoon of sugar and beat until stiff peaks form.

Whisk the egg whites into the mixture. Chill and serve.

Ho..Ho...Ho... 8)
