Posted on 12/15/2001 12:58:56 PM PST by VMI70
I want to share with all my fellow FReepers the recipe for what is probably the the greatest egg nog recipe ever. If you are a non drinker, move along, there is nothing to see here. If you are a drinker, even a heavy one, be very careful with this. It is a first cousin to rocket fuel.
Warning: this is a pain in the neck to make. It will take you a long time, about an hour and a half, but the results are well worth it. You will even make converts out of prople who are not egg nog fans.
Merry Christmas to all!!!
PS: Cheese goes very well with this. Also, put a small amount in a cup, and put it on your front porch. It may attract a Christmas moose or two.
Dr. Grafton Tyler's Egg Nog
First made in Washington, DC, circa 1903
1 Qt Whipping Cream
1 Qt Bourbon Whiskey (bourbon, not sour mash)
1 Pt Whole Milk
1 Pt Brandy
1 Punch cup Rum
1 lb Pulverized sugar (Instant Dissolving)
Makes about 1 1/2 gallons
1 Separate yolks & whites
2 Beat yolks until very light
3 Beat into the yolks, a little at a time, the sugar
4 Add slowly, the whiskey, brandy, & rum
5 Then add the milk
6 Then the whites of the eggs, beaten very stiff
7 Cream must be thick & beaten until as light as eggs, add last & mix thoroughly
It is. We had a party with this stuff in 1995, and the following morning, one of my closest friend's wife had to go into the hospital for 3 days for heart palpitations as a result of her over-imbibing. "Holiday heart" was the diagnosis.
How do you eliminate the risk of salmonella if you use raw eggs?
No such thing--Junk science--Liberal canard
On the other hand, if you really are worried about it, take a look at the volume of alcohol. Nothing bad can live in that.
EGG NOG FROM HELL
3 of them cartons of Egg Nog
1 carton of the Liquor of Your Choice, no biggern the carton of egg nog. Make mine Everclear!
** Note: If the Liquor of Your Choice is clear and not too heavily flavored, most of the guests wont know how cheap you are. If you try to throw in yer leftover Peppermint Schnapps or Sloe Gin, it aint gonna work too well.
Get a big pitcher or punch bowl. Mix all ingredients. Dont use a metal container cuz if the liquors too strong, itll eat through the bowl.
OR - fer a smaller batch:
1 carton of Egg Nog.
Pour out one glass and feed it to the neighbors cat. Pour into the carton enough Liquor of Your Choice to almost fill the carton, but leave a little room to stir it up. This way you dont need a separate container, plus its portable if church is running too long.
Fer Fancy Eggnog:
Prepare as above, either batch'll do. Pour into individual serve glasses or styrofoam cups. Garnish with a sprinkle of nutmeg.
** Note: in this case "garnish" means a little something added to the presentation of the beverage (it dont mean losin' yer wages)
