Unfortunately there was no moderately priced Pennsylvania beer
in our nog. Maybe next year!
I hope you know how to separate eggs, because it
isn't a New Years party if you don't wiggle around some yolks in
the sake of alcoholism! If you have a friend able to commit to such
a deed then consider your sobriety to be forfeit. Two dozen eggs
must be settled and separated into two bowls.
From where beat the yolks until they take on a creamy
texture, whipping all the sugar into them to make a sort of gross
gelatinous mass. If you prefer your eggnog to be a little sweeter
then you can add up to another cup of sugar, but be extremely delicate
about such things. Too much sugar can cause your Nog experience
to be a total disaster. After this add the rather curious, very
nontraditional, but entirely delicious Maker's Mark. 1 liter of
the substance will please most party guests and be perfectly suitable
for feminine consumption. But if you are of the more masculine persuasion
then I see no problem with adding as much as 1.5 liters. Go for
broke at your own risk!
Meanwhile you should have a stalwart companion whipping
those whites into frothy peaks. Hopefully you have some sort of
food processor or this will take a very long time! Add these to
your yolks and alcohol.
Beat your cream and then slowly add that and the
milk to the rest of the concoction. This will make 2 and 1/2 gallons
of material so hopefully you have a vat of equivalent size, and
a suitable amount of people to drink it. Garnish with nutmeg and
Happy New Years!
Before, just a simmering lump of grossness...
