A little late for an eggnog recipe, I know. But keep this in mind for the next holiday season.
As you might expect, fresh handmade eggnog tastes completely different from the dreck you get at the supermarket. I know plenty of people who hated eggnog, who loved their first taste of the homemade version. Properly done, it tastes like a faintly alcoholic milkshake.
4 egg yolks, whisked
1/3 cup sugar
3 cups whole milk
1 cup cream
3 oz (or more) bourbon
Whisk the egg yolks with the sugar until dissolved. Add the rest and stir to combine. Serve.
Note: yes, that does mean you're drinking raw egg yolks. Make sure your eggs are top-quality.
