I have decided to make some Egg Nog.

I think my dad is worried about me now... haha I was standing on the stool reaching in the highest cabinet in the kitchen pulling bottles of alcohol out and placing them gently on the counter as if he wouldn't hear the glass clacking on the tile counter tops. He was playing the mandolin... Anyway, I finally got to the very back of the cabinet where I knew my mother hid the bottle of Wild Turkey she found in my room over a year ago. I pulled it out, over the Crown Royal and through the muffin tins (to grandmother' house we go) and then put all the other liquors back in the cabinet. With my bottle of WT on the counter I noticed we needed to make a pitcher of tea. So I got the pitcher and the sugar and made some tea, dad got up and walked to the garage door and paused when he walked past the wild turkey bottle and just kinda glanced at it... then walked outside. I saw it out of the corner of my eye. yarrrrrrrrr! I bet he thinks i'm back here swillin outta the bottle!

Here's the recipe.

9 Eggs separated
1 cup extra fine sugar !DO NOT USE confectioners sugar!
2 cups light cream
3 cups heavy cream
1 cup Wild Turkey Bourbon Whisky
1/2 cup Remy Martin VSOP
( substitute Christian Brothers Brandy for a sweeter drink )

3 large mixing bowls
a whisk or electric beater
Chill all ingredients Metal and glass bowls

Place 9 egg yolks into a bowl and add sugar. Beat until thick. Add light cream, bourbon, and congac. Set aside.

Place 9 egg whites into a bowl and beat to soft peaks.
Do not make stiff peaks as this will make the eggnog separate. Set aside.

Place heavy cream into a bowl and beat until whipped cream.

Gently fold all 3 bowls together into your punch bowl.

Enjoy with some freshly grated nutmeg.

It's the HOLIDAYS!! Just drink it!
Keeping the eggnog cool is always good so don't put it by the fire. Don't over mix or stir the eggnog in the serving bowl. Gently fold it together if it needs it after an hour or so. A small spice grater and whole nutmeg by the bowl makes it real nice!


  1. I didn't find the half empty fifth of WT in your room... I found in the back of my truck in the driveway in front of the house on a Sunday morning when I went out to get the paper, after I had run you and your over indulging, loud mouthed buddies off the deck at 2 in the morning, over the river and through the woods.... Your dad wanted to lock all the liquor in the gun cabinet, where Jeff keeps his liquor.

  2. oh yeah. hahaha! it was in the bed of the truck. well, either way...

    about 5 mins after I took the bottle dad knocked on the door to my room, "uh, hi, did you see if maybe the world series was on somewhere?" I was just sitting on my bed watching tv, hhahaha he kinda glanced around.... tee hee! I should have had the bottle on a pillow next to me.

  3. I wonder if they sell the carton stuff in Mexico - you know like the kind of carton that milk comes in... Sounds a hell of a lot easier than this. And where I am going to find Wild Turkey? And I can just forget trying to find VSOP. Would tequila work?

  4. Oh man, that sounds like a heart attack waiting to happen. I want some!
