Grandma's Swingin' Eggnog Recipe
6 Egg yolk
1/2 cup white, granulated Sugar
2 cups Milk
2 cups Light rum
2 cups Whipping cream
Beat yolks until light. Add sugar and mix well. Add milk and rum. Mix well, then chill for at least 3 hours. One hour before serving, whip cream and stir into chilled mixture. Return to refrigerator for an hour. Serve in punch cups and dust with nutmeg. Serves 20.
This stuff is potent, even if you reduce the rum by half. Brandy, dark rum or bourbon may be substituted for the light rum. If you prefer a nonalcoholic eggnog, leave out the booze altogether. With or without booze, this eggnog is very rich and very good.
