    Here is my Great Grandmother's homemade eggnog recipe. She made it for breakfast on Christmas morning. Everybody, even the children, had eggnog. My Mother remembered drinking eggnog as a little child. Indeed, my non drinking parents drank eggnog, as made by my Grandmother and let us kids drink it too. Many a Christmas I was sh!tfaced on eggnog. :lol: It calls for 12 ounces of bourbon, I use 6. Full strength it will blow your head off!

    You could buy enough to make several batches, but only make one at a time. Your guests could make it so you don't screw it up.:lol:

    Mamma Wall's Eggnog
    12 eggs, separated
    12 heaping tablespoons of sugar
    12 shots of bourbon (I use 6)
    1 half pint whipping cream
    1 cup milk
    Beat egg whites until stiff.
    Beat whipping cream until stiff.
    Beat egg yolks, add sugar 1 tablespoon at a time.
    Continue beating egg yolks, slowly add bourbon 1 shot at a time. Beat egg yolk mixture thouroughly while
    adding bourbon. The bourbon cooks the egg yolks-if you just dump the bourbon in you will get curdled eggs.
    With a large spoon or spatula, fold the whipped cream into the egg yolk mixture. Then fold in the egg
    whites. Stir in the milk.
    Serve in cups with nutmeg or cinnamon sprinkled on top.

    @Nyboy if you decide to make this, make sure that you have a mixer, it can be a hand held. And copy and paste this so you can print it out.

    I am going to make. Funny thing is I never use the kitchen but have cabinets full of kitchen gadgets. I like clear counter tops and have nothing sitting out but my mothers kitchen aid mixer, dont even think I know how to turn it on.

    I'll bet your guests know how to turn it on. Tell them that your best friend in Texas sent them her Great Grandmother's eggnog with love!

    Seriously, 12 shots of bourbon will blow your head off if you are not much of a drinker. My grandmother always made it full strength. I make it with 6 shots of bourbon and could probably use less than that. LOL

    I hope you like it!

    OUR plans for the 25th involved driving 12 minutes to DD's house to open presents, then they follow us home 12 minutes drive for the feast. We intend to start the day with mimosas and then...not sure. We USED to keep vodka when we had to deal with troublesome relatives, but that's all gone, just drinking for pleasure now.
    THIS recipe would fit right into our plans!!
