Came across this egg nog recipe while searching for the one I used to make homemade every year, then confound it all, lost it.
It is rich and delicious, but I had to go to bed after drinking it.
From Southern Living, natch!
Yield: Makes 8 cups
* 6 large eggs, lightly beaten
* 3/4 cup sugar
* 2 cups milk
* 1 cup brandy
* 1/4 cup rum
* 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
* 2 cups whipping cream
* Garnishes: whipped cream, grated fresh nutmeg
Stir together egg and sugar in a large saucepan; gradually stir in milk. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, 18 to 20 minutes or until mixture thickens and coats a metal spoon. Remove from heat; stir in brandy, rum, and vanilla. Cover and chill 8 hours.
Beat whipping cream at high speed with an electric mixer until soft peaks form; fold into chilled egg mixture. Garnish, if desired.
