NVD Aged Eggnog

NVD Aged Eggnog*
 

Ingredients for Nog:

12 large eggs (pasteurized if you need peace of mind)
3/4 lb (12oz) sugar (or to taste)
1 pint (16oz) half-n-half
1 pint (16oz) whole milk
1 pint (16oz) heavy cream
8oz NVD Rumslinger Rum
8oz NVD Brandy Cordial
8oz NVD 2007 Bourbon Mash Whiskey OR NVD 2012 Bourbon Whiskey
2oz NVD Grand California (optional, if not using add 1oz more each of Rum & Bourbon)
1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg (plus more for serving)
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

 

Ingredients for NVD Grand Cali Whipped Cream (optional):

1 cup (8oz) heavy cream
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1.5tsp NVD Grand California 

Instructions for Nog:

Separate the eggs and store the whites for another purpose.
Beat the yolks with the sugar and nutmeg in a large mixing bowl until the mixture lightens in color and falls off the whisk in a solid "ribbon."

Combine dairy, booze and salt in a second bowl or pitcher and then slowly beat into the egg mixture.
Move to a large glass jar (or a couple of smaller ones) and store in the fridge for a minimum of 2 weeks. A month would be better, and two better still. In fact, there's nothing that says you couldn't age it a year, but I've just never been able to wait that long. (And yes, you can also drink it right away.)

Serve in mugs or cups topped with a dallop of NVD Grand Cali Whipped Cream and little extra nutmeg grated right on top.


Instructions for NVD Grand Cali Whipped Cream:

Add the heavy cream and sugar to the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a whisk attachment and whip until it forms soft peaks. Add the brandy and mix in.
