A few years ago, I heard Julia Reed on NPR give out a recipe for “The World’s Greatest Egg Nog.” The only place I’d ever gotten egg nog before was from the grocery store out of a carton…hmmm, you can actually make this from scratch? My wife was up for the challenge, and with some Bullet Bourbon left over from our wedding, we decided to give it a try….WOW! It was actually pretty easy to make, and holiday party goers we’re shocked and surprised, like me, most had never actually had, real, homemade egg nog. The best tips I can offer with preparation are, do not beat the cream TOO much, then the egg nog gets too thick and it almost ends up being like a mousse, rather than a liquid you can drink, it takes quite a while to beat the eggs until they’re “ugly” or almost blue, and let the bourbon and sugar sit combined in the mixing bowl overnight.
