Basic Versatile Eggnog Recipe

Well, we all have to start somewhere. This basic recipe can be adjusted for more or less alcohol and even the kind of alcohol. Just remember that with alcohol added, a few glasses of eggnog is the equivalent of drinking a few glasses of wine or a couple of beers. Designate a driver for those especially fond of the nog.

6 separated
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 quarts thick cream
1 1/4 tumblers whiskey, brandy or rum
Dashes of cinnamon or nutmeg

Beat egg yolks and sugar together until they are senseless (or lemon-colored). Set aside while you beat the egg-whites stiff followed by some harshly thrashed cream. Dump all this into the yokes along with your choice of liquor. Then chill.
