Classic Eggnog


4 Egg Yolks

1/2 cup Sugar

1 1/2 cups Whole Milk

1 1/2 cups Cream

1 teaspoon Nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Pinch Cinnamon

4 ounces Bourbon


In a bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and sugar until the sugar is dissolved. Set aside

In a medium saucepan, combine milk, cream, nutmeg, vanilla extract, and cinnamon. Bring to a simmer. Temper the egg yolks by whisking 1/3 the hot mixture into the egg yolk mixture. Return the saucepan back to the stove and bring to a simmer once again. When simmering, whisk in the tempered egg yolks. Cook for 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat and pour in a clean bowl. Stir in the bourbon and refrigerate until chilled.  Serve with nutmeg garnish.
