My aunt makes eggnog every year for the holidays…and personally I think she uses it as a sedative while she helps out in the kitchen, and helps organize the whole day.
I love this recipe not only because it reminds me of my aunt Sharron, but
also ‘cause it’s so simple and good.
This is guaranteed to be a hit at your holiday party and is the perfect alternative for people who want to drink without feeling like they’re hardcore boozing.
6 eggs – separated
1/2 c rum
1 c sugar
1 1/2 qts. whole milk
