    eggs + heavy cream + milk + bourbon + nutmeg. Keeps you warm (ok, so the booze doesn't ACTUALLY keep you warm) and helps you put on a protective layer of bulk in the long run.

    4 egg yolks
    1/3 cup sugar, plus 1 tablespoon
    1 pint whole milk
    1 cup heavy cream
    3 ounces bourbon (I used wild turkey)
    1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
    4 egg whites*

    In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the egg yolks until they lighten in color. Gradually add the 1/3 cup sugar and continue to beat until it is completely dissolved. Add the milk, cream, bourbon and nutmeg and stir to combine.

    Place the egg whites in the bowl of a stand mixer and beat to soft peaks. With the mixer still running gradually add the 1 tablespoon of sugar and beat until stiff peaks form.
    Whisk the egg whites into the mixture. Chill and serve.

    Bourbon is key really. I think it lends a better flavor in comparison to brandy or rum.

    Sounds great. Minus the nutmeg, cream, eggs, and milk.

    I'm such an idiot... I was sitting here thinking: Shit! what the hell's left?! anyways, the bourbon itself isn't good bulking food really. Not going to get you that far I don't think.

    as a side note I'll be making eggnog ice cream in the ice cream maker I just got for christmas. SWEET!

    I just had some. My god it was horrible. I was at my parents and I told her to pick some up. She got egg nog in a milk carton that was non-alcoholic. It was supposed to be mixed with southern comfort. I dunno, the thing was SO thick, and tasted horrible.

    Last year I had "holiday nogg" with brandy in it. That wasn't too bad. Wasn't as thick, tasted better, I recommend that much more.

    The thick stuff is pasteurized. It's awful in comparison to the homemade - unpastuerized, salmonella rich version.

    Shouldn't you post this in the Official Recipe Thread?

    Exactly. I like to call it the "holiday suprise." You drink a gallon or so and you wait. No salmonella, its a bulking agent. Salmonella its cutting and be prepared to lose 10 lbs in a few days.

    Either way you win!

    oh yeah... I'l post it in there too. you got it. Here's a question on the function of that thread, should a new thread be created for a recipe so it can be discussed and simultaneously posted in the recipe thread so it's sort of archived?

    I don't mind that if you don't mind that. I think questions could be asked in the recipe thread, but I see how it could get a bit dis-organized. So whatever works for everyone in here. The crowd in here has become pretty good in-terms of doing right by threads.

    That thread is a good idea. I think it would be a really good idea to only allow people to post recipes - if people just start posting general conversation it is going to be hard to sift through it, especially so since I can see that thread growing to be many pages long (dont feel like Im backseat moderating, just a suggestion).

    bourbon and nog = good. captain mo and nog = great. the spiced flavor of the rum compliments the nog nicely IMO

    I'm not drinking anything with that much fat in it unless somebody's panties are coming off at the end of the night.
