Capital Eggnog

Total Time:
4 hr 10 min
Prep:
3 hr 40 min
Cook:
30 min

Yield:
12 to 16 servings
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 6 cups whole milk
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg, plus more for sprinkling
  • 12 large pasteurized egg yolks
  • 2 cups sugar
  • Bourbon or praline- flavored liqueur (optional)
Directions

Heat the milk, cream and nutmeg in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until steaming, 5 to 7 minutes. Reduce the heat to low and keep warm.

Whisk the egg yolks and sugar in a separate saucepan until smooth. Cook over low heat, whisking constantly, until the mixture coats a spoon and registers 160 degrees F on a thermometer, about 25 minutes. Remove from the heat and gradually whisk in the warm milk mixture. Let cool 30 minutes.

Transfer the eggnog to a pitcher, cover and refrigerate until cold, at least 3 hours and up to 1 day. Pour 1 to 2 tablespoons bourbon into each glass. Top with the eggnog and sprinkle with nutmeg.
