It is relatively easy to toss a few quarts of eggnog and a bottle of rum into a punch bowl, but take the time to make some eggnog from scratch and you will be amazed how great real eggnog can be.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 12 jumbo egg yolks
- 1 pound granulated sugar
- 1 quart whole milk
- 1 quart heavy cream, lightly whipped
- 1 liter spiced rum
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Beat yolks in a large mixing bowl. Gradually add sugar. Beat until mixture thickens. Stir in milk and rum. Pour into a large punch bowl and chill for 3-4 hours.
Fold in whip cream before serving. Garnish with freshly ground nutmeg.
