Egg Nog

Egg Nog! I think this is a drink that you either like it or hate it. Personally, spiked egg nog is better. =)


3 egg yolks
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 cups milk
1 cup heavy cream
2 egg whites
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

Using a mixer, beat egg yolks, then gradually add 1/3 cup of sugar until dissolved. Add the salt and stir in the milk and cream. Add mixture to saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly. When mixture reaches about 160 degrees F (or coats spoon), remove from heat, pour into glass bowl and set inside a refrigerator to chill.

Using a mixer, beat the egg whites until they are foamy. Then, gradually add 3 tablespoons sugar until soft peaks form. Add to chilled mixture and whisk, mixing thoroughly.

Serves 6-8 people.
