Just in time for the holidays, my Old Maryland Egg Nog recipe. This egg nog is lethal, so make sure you warn guests before they imbibe. I have frozen the remainder for use in blender drinks or as a sort of ice cream dessert. Take this one to your holiday office party, and then ask your boss for a raise!
1 quart of fresh cream
a dozen eggs separated
12 level tablespoons sugar
1 quart brandy
1/2 pint dark Jamaican rum
Use the freshest and best quality ingredients you can. To each quart of rich
fresh cream, use one quart of good quality brandy, a half pint of the best dark
Jamaica rum and a dozen eggs separated. With each egg use a level tablespoon
of sugar, which should be well dissolved in the cream before the other ingredients
are added. The whites and the yolks of the eggs are separated and well beaten
before they are added to the cream and the sugar. Then add the brandy and the
rum separately. Stir well as they are being slowly added to avoid curdling.
Serve in a punch bowl with a bit of freshly ground nutmeg and cinnamon sprinkled on top.
Please do not drink and drive. Have a safe and happy holiday season.
